Conte to use Hazard as false nine again

Chelsea’s Davide Zappacosta in action with Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic

Eden Hazard was used as a false nine by Conte in their loss to Manchester City last Sunday and the forward was unhappy with the role insisting that it is hard for him to a play a good game when he only touches the ball three times according to the Telegraph.

Conte added: "This is a situation we can improve with Alvaro".

'The tactics were the same against Barcelona [in the Champions League],' Conte said. "You have to regret the games against Bournemouth, Watford and United", he remarks.

"If you look at the stats, we conceded only two shots to Manchester City: one they scored, and another after a free-kick and [Cesar Azpilicueta] saved it on the line".

'I didn't see a lot of shots on goal from Manchester City, and this is very unusual. When you play against City there is the possibility to lose the game.

"For sure, Juventus showed great resilience, they suffered a lot and, in the right minute, they killed Tottenham".

Iniesta missed the La Liga leader's 2-0 win over bottom side Malaga on Saturday after picking up a hamstring injury in last week's victory over Atletico Madrid.

"(Against Palace) for sure we have this option to play with Giroud or Morata as number nine.

"But the tactics were the same against Barcelona and, against Barcelona, I didn't listen to anyone complaining".

"We could have played on for three hours, and I (still) wouldn't touch a ball", Hazard told Belgian newspaper Het Laatste after being deployed as a false nine. "If I'd started with Zaha and he'd broken down - after only one and a half training sessions - the question would have been very different". There are three players for two places. "I trust a lot in all my players".

"If you listen to him, when he used to talk about it, yeah, it sounds very easy, but today it is very hard and something awesome to fight for, starting from Wednesday". [At] Juventus, with [Marcello] Lippi. "We have to try the right solution to play this game". "Then, after the game, we'll start to think about the Champions League game". During the worldwide break I did an interview.

'The journalists asked me if I was happy with the team and this important win.
