Conte’s side take on Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur in their next upcoming two matches and Conte has selected Pedro, Hazard and Willian as the standouts after their win against the Cherries.
‘Eden, Pedro and Willian all played really well. After the Crystal Palace game, I said we had a week to work to find the right solution and play for the first time without Diego [Costa] and [N’Golo] Kante this season,’ said Conte.
‘After a week of work, I decided to choose this solution, with Eden as a forward. I’m pleased for the performance of these players
‘I knew Eden only as an opponent [before coming to Chelsea], above all for his national team. I watched him a lot of times on TV and I’m not surprised. He has great talent. The most important thing is he is putting his talent in the team.
‘It’s fantastic for me to see the great job he is doing with the ball, and above all without the ball. I hope to continue to improve him in his way.’
