Eden Hazard missed Chelsea’s game against Sunderland on Wednesday, and Chelsea manager in his pre-match conference has revealed that the Blues star is fit to play against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Conte said: “Yeah, I think he’s fit, he trained today with us.”

However, Conte refused to say if he’d start Hazard against Crystal Palace tomorrow.

“Then, I have to see if I decide to put Eden in the starting XI – not only him, but also for the other players. I have tonight to decide.

“It’s not easy to play three games in six days. We played against Sunderland on Wednesday and got back at 4am. We have had only one day to prepare for the game and play again at 12.30.

“For this reason, it’s important to see every single detail and then to take the best decision for tomorrow.” Conte said.
