Antonio Conte has claimed that Eden Hazard is becoming the “complete player” at Chelsea this season.

The Belgian playmaker has been one of the Premier League’s top performing players this season to help the Blues top the table.

Hazard has been rewarded for his fine form with a nomination for the PFA player of the year award as he bids to help Chelsea win a Premier League and FA Cup double this season.

The 26-year-old could not prevent Chelsea from slipping to a 2-0 loss to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

But Conte has been delighted by Hazard’s development under his guidance at Stamford Bridge this season.

Conte told a news conference before Chelsea’s trip to Manchester United: “Eden is working very well for the team when we are in ball possession and when we are without the ball.

“Eden is becoming a complete player and it’s great for him.”

Hazard won the PFA player of the year award in the 2014-15 season after helping Chelsea win a Premier League and League Cup double under Jose Mourinho.
