Eden Hazard missed our last league game against Stoke City and was also unavailable for Belgium’s games against Greece and Russia.

But he has been declared fit to play against Crystal Palace on Saturday, and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte delivered a message from Eden Hazard: “I am confident to not only play but to play really good.”

When Conte was asked if he has spoken to Hazard about the Real Madrid links, he said: “No, it is not important to speak about this.

“I like to speak to him about this season, the importance of this game.

“He missed Stoke, we have to check his form and I hope he shows tomorrow great things, to play great football.

“I like to talk about this.”
