Eden Hazard heaped praise on Antonio Conte after Chelsea won the Premier League title on Friday night.

The Blues won their first Premier League title under Conte thanks to 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Hazard was brought off in the 76th minute at West Brom and his replacement Michy Batshuayi scored the winning goal with eight minutes to play.

The Belgium international has been a key player under Conte this season after what was a difficult 2015-16 campaign for Hazard.

The Italian coach has managed to get the best out of the Chelsea number 10 after criticism of the 2015 PFA player of the year last term.

Hazard has scored 15 goals and has made nine assists in a fruitful campaign for the Belgian star.

Speaking to Sky Sports about the Chelsea manager after their title success on Friday night, Hazard said:

“We all know he’s a fantastic manager.

“We worked a lot in training and I think it was the key for us this season. Full credit on him and also on the players.”
