Eden Hazard: Chelsea's N'Golo Kante is everywhere and must play with a twin

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has said midfielder N'Golo Kante covers so much ground that he sometimes feels he is seeing him twice.

Kante, signed from Premier League champions Leicester in the summer, made the interception that led to Hazard opening the scoring in Monday's 2-1 win at West Ham.

The victory re-established Chelsea's 10-point lead at the top of the Premier League, and Hazard told Chelsea TV: "I don't need to say something about N'Golo. Everyone knows about him -- he's everywhere.

"I think sometimes when I'm on the pitch I see him twice, one on the left, one on the right. I think he plays with a twin.

"He's a fantastic player, and he helps the team a lot."

Hazard said he believed Chelsea had rediscovered the blend that took them to the Premier League title two years ago, with Antonio Conte's side resembling the 2014-15 team guided to the title by Jose Mourinho.

Eden Hazard opened the scoring against West Ham at the London Stadium.

"For a while now, I think we've all been at a good level this year. Me too," he said.

"We're happy to play together. Last year, it was a little bit complicated, but two years ago we had a very good season.

"There are a lot of similarities between how we're playing now and how we played two years ago. It's up to us to do the same thing -- go and get the title."

The Belgium international, who has chipped in with 11 goals in 26 Premier League games, said there was no danger of Conte's men resting on their laurels.

"In England, you never know what can happen," he said. "If we lose two matches, it [the lead] could be down to four points.

"We're going to give everything right to the end. There are 11 games left and we hope we're going to try and win the title as soon as possible."
