Antonio Conte has started implementing a 3-4-3 formation at Chelsea and Hazard is glad, as it affords him more freedom.
Goals from Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Victor Moses sealed Chelsea’s 3-0 home win over the reigning champions.
This is the blues second consecutive victory since Conte switched his tactics, deploying two attacking midfielders behind point man, Costa.
And Hazard, whose goal was his third in the league this season, is thoroughly enjoying the strategy.
He told Sky Sports: “I play more inside the pitch and I don’t stay wide.
“I play this system with the Belgium side. We have more freedom and we can win the ball back. It is good for us.
“We did everything – we created a lot of chances, scored three goals and didn’t concede. It’s good to be back and take three points.”
Hazard added that his celebration – making the number 22 with his hands – was dedicated to team-mate Willian, who is on compassionate leave after the death of his mother.
He added: “My celebration was for Willy. He lost his mother and we are thinking about him. We hope he can come back stronger.”
