Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was delighted seeing Alvaro Morata continue his scoring run at Leicester City.

Morata struck the opener in the 2-1 win.

Cnte remarked: “It’s a good day for the team, it’s a good day for Alvaro. It’s always important for a striker to score but for me it’s very important to see he is improving and he is more involved in our football. That’s the most important thing. If he scores I am very happy and I am pleased for the player.”

There was more good news with the return of Eden Hazard from injury. The Belgian came off the bench to make his 250th Chelsea appearance and Conte was pleased to be able to call upon the No10…

“This is good news for us. For sure he needs time to be 100 per cent but for us his recovery is very important. We all know very well the importance of this player for us. Now we must have patience to give him the possibility to improve his form, but I am pleased for him because after a bad injury it’s great to see him with us.”
