Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is keen on Eden Hazard and his teammates to keep up the positivity for the Barcelona match, The Metro reports.
Hazard spoke after the disappointing 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid saying that Chelsea didn’t fear any club in the Champions League.
Speaking in his press-conference on Monday, Conte believes that this is a great stage for his players to show what they can do, as The Metro reports.
The Metro quotes Conte saying:
“This type of game is a good chance for every player to show the right value, not only for Hazard, but for every player in the right way.”
Hazard vital to Chelsea’s hopes of beating Barcelona
If there’s one player that can unlock any weaknesses Barcelona have, it’s Hazard. When the Belgian is at his best, any opposition should be afraid of the winger.
Of course, we have other key players but if the La Liga leaders stop the 25-year-old, things will be tough for us.
