Eden Hazard has been having one good game after another, after a slow start to the season.

The Belgian had a knee injury that kept him out of action from the end of last season till September. He was then introduced slowly by Conte as he struggled for form.

But he turned a gear since October and has been rising ever since.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has admitted that the 26-year-old is in good form after a good game against Liverpool.

Conte said after the game: “The start of the season was full of trouble, he had an injury and we started without him.

“When you need a surgery it is important to have the best time for your recovery. He is in a really good form and he likes to play as a striker.

“There is a good link with Alvaro, for me it is a great opportunity in this season to have the possibility to have two different season. Qarabag was 3-4-2-1, this was 3-5-2, it is important not to lose identity in both cases.”
