Eden Hazard has admitted that Antonio Conte sometimes drives him “mad” with his antics on the touchline during Chelsea games.

Conte has had a big positive impact at Chelsea since being drafted in as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor at Stamford Bridge last summer.

Chelsea are currently flying four points clear at the top of the Premier League table but did suffer a blow to their title ambitions when they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United on Sunday.

Hazard has been a regular fixture in the Chelsea team this season but was unable to prevent the Blues from slumping to a disappointing loss to Manchester United.

The 26-year-old has lifted the lid on his thoughts on Conte and admitted that the Premier League title race is far from over.

Hazard told Telefoot: “Conte? He drives me mad sometimes on the side of the pitch. The coach is always shouting, putting the players back in position.

“It’s also that which has made us succeed this season: it’s that we give everything during games.

“This title race? You never know with this league. It’s different to Spain and Germany where you can feel safe with a seven-point lead and say to yourself, ‘You’re going to be champions.’ If we do what we did over the last matches, we’ll be champions.”
