Chelsea great Pat Nevin believes Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata are Antonio Conte’s go-to guys at the moment.
“The biggest decisions for Antonio are who to rest and when, which leads directly onto prioritising some games just slightly over others,” Nevin wrote on Chelsea’s official website.
“Clearly the Newcastle game and three points was a top priority because Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata were tasked with making the three points secure as soon as possible. They are the go-to guys right now and they certainly aren’t letting anyone down, scoring all three goals between them on Saturday.
“When you consider that they are a fairly new partnership, there is no doubt they are striking fear into the hearts of every defence they are set loose on while still surprising many. Had Eden stayed fully fit against Liverpool after a series of fouls on him, I am convinced we would be two points better off than we are just now.”
