Antonio Conte hailed Eden Hazard as a “complete” footballer after his sparkling display in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

The Belgian playmaker was in fine form for the Blues as he helped the west London side take a step closer towards winning the Premier League title with a thumping win over the Gunners.

After Marcos Alonso had given Chelsea the lead in the 13th minute, Hazard netted a superb solo goal shortly after half-time to double the home side’s advantage.

Cesc Fabregas came off the bench to net a third for the Blues, before Olivier Giroud netted a late consolation goal for the visitors.

Hazard was named as man of the match for his impressive display against Arsene Wenger’s men.

And Conte was particularly impressed by the 26-year-old’s contribution for the west London side on Saturday.

Conte told his post-match news conference at Stamford Bridge: “Hazard shows always quality. I am pleased for him.

“Today his performance was very good with the ball.

“But I want to underline without the ball because he worked a lot for the team.

“When he plays this way he is a complete player.”
