"Hazard is an important player for us and we play with our team and we are forced to play without him because of injury".

"It was a good test (against Leicester)". "Now he's very good also with the ball". There was Willian, (Michy) Batshuayi, me, these kind of players can change the game.

Antonio Conte's side sits third on the Premier League table with three straight wins and Morata - who has three goals and two assists to his name - has seemingly cemented his role as first choice hitman after a shock defeat started their campaign.

"I must be realistic and calm", said Conte.

They will be full of confidence following their qualification into this years Champions League, beating Copenhagen on away goals to reach the group stage; an unbelievable achievement for FK Qarabag. This season I am playing to win again. I won only once.

"But in terms of the effort and commitment of the players so far I am very happy".
