N’golo Kante has hailed Eden Hazard’s performance against Atletico, but credited the whole team for the win.
Hazard made his second start of the season for Chelsea and was a key player for the Blues, as he provided the assist for Morata’s equaliser, before Batshuayi scored the winner in the 94th minute.
Kante was quite impressed with the Belgium international’s heroics, as a budding partnership between the winger and Morata is starting to emerge.
“I think Eden played a very good game,” Kante said. “He made the assist for Alvaro and as a team I think we did a good game together and him, in particular, played a good game.
“I think in Chelsea, we have a lot players who are all available and are doing well but Eden worked very well. They played well together [Hazard and Morata] but I think we are a team, we are greater together and we won together.
“Thanks to Eden for the assist, Alvaro for the goal and Michy for a goal with Marcos’s assist. It was a team performance.
“I am happy for the win, for the team. It is good but we have to keep going for the next game in the Champions League and Premier League.
“Now we are in the group stage in the Champions League but I think after the group it is like another competition and we just need to qualify for the next step by making it out of the group. It is a good result.”
