Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has stated that the club can have no excuse for their 3-0 loss to rivals Arsenal.
The blues were yet to lose in the EPL under Conte, until they lost 2-1 to Liverpool and followed it with a 3-0 loss to Arsenal.
Arsenal scored three times in the opening 40 minutes, leaving Chelsea with no way back, and Hazard acknowledges his side must improve.
“There are no excuses,” he told the club’s official website. “It was not good. We lost too many duels.
“We came to win the match but we made mistakes – for the first goal, another for the second and then before we knew it we were already 3-0 down.
“Every weekend at the moment we having to come back and score. We did it at Leicester but against Arsenal, who were playing at home, it was not possible.
“They played well. We need to be better. In the last three games in the league there have been nine points available and we have got one. It is disappointing.
“We need to go away and work on what we are doing wrong ahead of the big matches that are coming up.”
With no European football this season, Chelsea’s next test comes away to Hull City on Saturday.
