Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte claims his only regret over the fantastic strike partnership between Spain striker Alvaro Morata and Belgium playmaker Eden Hazard is that it took him so long for to be able to pair both attackers together.
Eden Hazard has rediscovered his sensational form recently having missed the beginning of the League season after ankle surgery during the last summer.
The Belgium international attacker netted twice in the 4-0 triumph over West Bromwich Albion which pushed the home team’s manager Tony Pulis closer to receiving his sack letter and had a hand in strike partner Alvaro Morata’s opener, the Spain international striker’s ninth goal of an increasingly sensational debut campaign in the English Premier League.
‘We [the Chelsea team] performed very well, said Antonio Conte. ‘[Alvaro] Morata and [Eden] Hazard have a great link [up], they [the pair] are now fully fit. ‘It is much easier now to forget that we [Chelsea] started the league season without [Eden] Hazard.’ On [Eden] Hazard’s splendid form, he added: ‘Today Eden [Hazard] played very well.
I [Antonio Conte] think he [Eden Hazard] showed a great patience, despite certain situations [he was] very strong. ‘I [Antonio Conte] played [the game before] and I [Conte] understand when you [a player] are against these types of players [skillful player] it is hard to stop them. ‘He [Eden Hazard] has to continue in this form now that he is fully fit, He [Hazard] is enjoying to play with us [Chelsea].’
