Almost everyone thought Michy Batshuayi will start for Chelsea against Bournemouth, due to the suspension of Diego Costa, but Antonio Conte opted to start Eden Hazard upfront instead of his Belgian teammate.

Speaking about the Batshuayi situation, Hazard told SPR Sport: “During the week I thought that Michy would play there because Diego [Costa] was suspended.

“But the coach picked me to play up top, so I tried to do my best.

“I had already played there a little last year. So I know the position a little. Generally it went well.”
