Conte thanks Chelsea fans

Conte thanks Chelsea fans

The 28-year-old's injury is a blow for West Brom, who have struggled to find the net throughout the campaign. But I don't think it's anything to do with that at all and I don't know where you're getting that judgement from.

Hazard, who put in a spectacular performance, recording yet another brace against the helpless Baggies, declared that Chelsea are back after the win.

"The way he's worked at our place has been of the highest order". He remains one of the genuinely world-class talents at the club, a wonderful coach, albeit dressed up in a strangely exhausting, abrasive persona.

"Morata has suffered for a month with this pain in his back and I hope we've solved this situation".

While managers are disposable commodities for Abramovich, retaining a player with the trickery and attacking threat of Hazard is essential. At the time West Brom were 17th and had taken ten points from 12 league matches.

"'It's exciting when you sign for a new side and I'm looking forward to playing tonight", Giroud said in quotes published on Chelsea's Twitter account.

"It was important to have a point of reference like him. We were not good enough today".

Two goals from Eden Hazard sandwiched a Victor Moses strike to help the Blues move past their latest opposition quite comfortably. It seems to be a strain, which will probably keep him out of the FA Cup game [versus Southampton on Saturday].

"We showed a response and we did well in front of our fans", Hazard said. Regardless, Conte chose a strong starting lineup (it's easier with Tiemoue Bakayoko suspended) and the Blues never looked back.

Chelsea hauled themselves out of an abject slumber as Davide Zappacosta and full-debutant Olivier Giroud forced close-range saves from Ben Foster and they led in the 25th minute.

It was a particularly special afternoon for goalkeeper Martin Dubravka - the imposing January loan signing from Sparta Prague, who produced a man-of-the-match display on his debut.

It's been a subdued Premier League season for Cesc Fabregas though same could be said for many of his teammates.

"For sure I have to thank the fans", he continued.

A reasonable claim given only the aforementioned De Bruyne (83) and Mesut Ozil (72) have created more chances than him (67). His experience and understanding of the game are extremely valuable.
