Jose Mourinho may not think about the title, but I certainly am as Chelsea head into the middle of February on top in the Premier League, one point ahead of Arsenal after their demolition at the hands of Liverpool and Manchester City's stuttering away draw against a resilient Norwich team.
The difference this team has compared to recent years where we have failed to get close to the Premier League title, is a truly world class footballer.
Manchester United had Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester City have Sergio Aguero, and even Liverpool have Luis Suarez.
These are players that stand out in key games when the rest of the team is struggling. They are consistent, masterful and majestic to watch and Chelsea now have all that in Eden Hazard.
Since joining from Lille last season we have seen patches of pure magic from the Belgian, now into his second season.
The loss of Juan Mata, I believe, has contributed to his brilliance. Having already broken his tally of goals for last season he looks set to give Suarez competition for player of the year if he carries on.
His first hat-trick for the Blues in their 3-0 win against Newcastle capped a perfect performance.
Alan Pardew's side just could not contain him, as he drove down the left wing, linking up particularly well with Samuel Eto'o.
Frank Lampard among others in the team were just in awe of him during and after the game, no more so than when Hazard was given the ball to complete his hat-trick from the penalty spot.
It also seems that having been in the team for a season and a half a lot of the lads are understanding how to play with him, as he seems completely unpredictable at times, which is one of his greatest strengths.
He is no doubt a huge talent with a great future ahead of him and on this form, he will really push this 'little horse' to the finish line.
