Eden Hazard: This is what manager Antonio Conte told me before the game against Burnley


Attacking midfielder Eden Hazard says manager Antonio Conte asked him to be very active in Chelsea's offensive department.

The Belgium international was one of the best players against Burnley on Saturday in a game that the Blues won by 3-0.

It was Chelsea's third win in three in the English Premier League as they keep their place at the top of the table.

"The manager spoke about it before the game, for the last 13 matches we've conceded a goal so a clean sheet is always good for the confidence," Hazard told the club's official website.

"It's a lot easier to win when you don't concede a goal.

"We created a lot of chances and scored three beautiful goals. There is no doubt we deserved to win and we want to play like that in every game.

"In front of the fans it's always good to score goals, we could have scored more but three isn't bad.

"He's [Antonio Conte has] tried to give us confidence.

"He knows players because he used to be one. We had one bad season but we are trying to do better. He tries to motivate us and we are giving everything.

"He told me to sometimes to go inside, sometimes to stay wide and open up the game. He wants me to score some goals and make a difference."
