Antonio Conte reveals how he will deploy Eden Hazard at Chelsea this season


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says attacking midfielder Eden Hazard can be deployed in a number of positions.

The 25-year-old was in scintillating form as he scored both goals for the Blues in Saturday's pre-season friendly against Real Madrid.

And he will certainly be one of the key players in the Italian's squad this season.

"Eden Hazard played 30 minutes and he is recovering a good shape," Conte said after the Belgian's brace.

"I like him in this position, like a forward, and he can be a good solution for us. Also playing as a winger. To play as a second forward he must improve his shape but he is working and he knows his shape can a lot in the same way as the other players.

"[Michy] Batshuayi's shape is improving and he's starting to understand our idea of football.

"I'm happy with his commitment. He can improve a lot.

"Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] is a bit tired but he tried to work and to fight for the team. I'm happy with his attitude and behaviour and I know he can play in this role and play good football."
