Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte does not think midfielder, Eden Hazard has anything to worry about, as he feels he can handle himself on the pitch.
The Belgium captain has been spectacular for Chelsea this season and was targeted by United players in the FA cup clash on Monday. Ander Herrera was sent off in the first half for two fouls on Hazard.
And Conte was questioned ahead of the match against Stoke about Hazard, but he feels he can take care of himself.
“I understand in football there are these types of situations and you don’t always face teams who want to play football,” Conte said.
“Eden is showing great football but also great character and personality in every game. He is a type of player who is very difficult to stop and for this reason you try to stop him with a good or bad way.
“But I’m not worried about this because Eden is very strong physically, and he’s showed me he’s able to play in this league. He’s not tall but he’s strong.
“During the game it can happen to get kicked, it’s normal, but the referee must pay great attention and try to respect the rules because football is a great sport.”
