Eden Hazard has been in form since Antonio Conte switched to a 3-4-3 system. Eden Hazard has been one of Chelsea’s standout performers, and he has been nominated for the Player of the Month award for October 2016.
Conte revealed why Hazard has been so good in this new system.
He said: “Now Eden Hazard is playing more close to the goal and he is participating more in offensive situations,” Conte offers as an explanation as to Hazard’s form.
“This is better for him, this type of system that permits him to stay in these positions where he can finish easier compared with last year, and for this reason I want him to continue this way. We know his talent, he is fantastic player, and I have found out here he is a player working very well without the ball and working very well with the team.
The Italian also appreciated the work of Diego Costa.
He said: “I think the work of our strikers, it is the same with Diego, is appreciated by their team-mates. They are working very well for the team.”
