Eden Hazard is back for Chelsea and has so far played two games for the Blues since coming back from a long-term injury.

Hazard is yet to start a game for Chelsea this season, having missed pre-season football during the summer, and Antonio Conte thinks he isn’t 100% fit but is close to full match fitness.

Conte said in his press conference: “About Eden, he is improving and to have this type of patience is paying off. He is very close to be totally fit and to continue in this way. I have to make decision for the team and the best decision for the players. I think he is improving a lot and is very close to being 100%.”

Hazard came on as a substitute in victories against Everton and Qarabag.

Conte doesn’t yet think the Belgium international should start against Arsenal on Sunday.
