After his fantastic performance against Newcastle this afternoon, where he didn’t only score a brace but he was man of the match hands down, Eden Hazard was praised by his coach, Antonio Conte, that had very nice words for his team star:
“Eden played a good game. Today we saw a good link between him and Alvaro,” the Blues boss commented on Sky Sports after the final whistle.
“In this type of game, when we decided to have a tactical solution, he had more freedom to play as striker and then offensively he was very dangerous. He played very well, scored twice, and the goalkeeper made two fantastic saves from him. He must continue in this way to improve himself.”
Continuing to speak about the game, Conte added:
“It was a good performance. Maybe our start was a bit a slow, not good enough. But after we went 1-0 down we played with good intensity and created chances to score. In the end it was a good performance. This team has a lot of professionals, when our start is not good enough there is always a good reaction, like against Liverpool. This team I strong for sure, we are in good form, good physical condition and strong tactically in defence and attack. We are working well and we have to continue in this way.”
