The Blues can go level on points with second-placed City if they become the first side this season to beat Manuel Pellegrini's side on their home turf.

"We know City are playing very well this season and they score a lot of goals, but we are not scared. We are going there to win," he told the club's official website.

"Some teams play against City and they are scared because they have a lot of strikers who score a lot of goals in their home stadium, but we are in good form as well, and if we win we will stay near the top of the table. It will be a good game."

Hazard has scored 11 goals in 31 games for Chelsea so far this season.
