Nicolas Plestan, a former Hazard team-mate at Lille, told French TV he gave the Belgian star a slap during a training session.

“Eden Hazard was training with both our senior squad and the Under-21s,” Plestan said – “He used to criticise us when he dropped down into the junior side. One morning he turned up and shook my hand. I told him: ‘Why are you shaking my hand when you slag me off behind my back?’ He just sucked his teeth by way of reply, so I gave him a slap. I am not proud of it, but I don’t regret doing it. It is part of dressing-room life, and there was a lack of dressing-room spirit on his part”.

It’s no news Antonio Conte brought Chelsea passion and determination again, and we also know the Italian coach loves to join his players during training exercises to improve the feeling and remain fit.

But the unexpected can happen, and it’s understood the Blues boss picked up a calf injury while doing a running exercise with his squad.

Who knows if this we will stop him to be so passionate in the touchline during Stoke’s game tomorrow, as we could see in these first months at Stamford Bridge.

But when you are pursuing the 13th win in a row and you are in the title race, nothing can basically stop you, especially if you are an ardent guy like Antonio Conte.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has admitted that he has a lot of respect for former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.

Conte insists that he is a great manager after visiting Cobham to watch a training session, however, he didn’t consult him before taking the job at Stamford Bridge.

“I know Jose.

“Two years ago I visited him in Cobham, at Chelsea’s training ground, and I saw a training session with him.

“He’s a good manager, one of the best in the world, and I have great respect for him. He is a winner.

“I can’t say we have great relationship, because we don’t speak every day, but I have great respect.

“Did I speak to him before I took the Chelsea job? No, it doesn’t happen. I visited Chelsea, West Ham and Tottenham and I also spoke with Sam Allardyce and also with Mauricio Pochettino.

“It was then that I started to think that I would like to have an experience outside of my country.”
