Antonio Conte’s men showed good spirit in the opening match of the day in the English Premier League after Newcastle man Dwight Gayle had handed the visitors a shocking early lead.
A double from Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard and another goal by summer signing Alvaro Morata sealed the victory for the Blues and keeps them on the coat tails of the Manchester clubs.
After the English Premier League match, manager Antonio Conte had a number of intriguing things to discuss, not least the Belgium international forward Eden Hazard spot kick which secured the vital win.
The Belgian took a Panenka-style spot kick to beat away goalkeeper Karl Darlow but Antonio Conte warned the former Lille forward not to do it all the time.
The Chelsea head coach was also questioned about England being grouped against Belgium at next summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Conte confirmed he saw Belgium and England in the same group two great sides, and he believes the two teams will make it out of the group. He also claims he can’t wait to watch the game.
The former Juventus head coach also joked that he would ask England defender Gary Cahill not to kick club mate Eden Hazard in the Belgium versus England clash.
