Eden Hazard tells Antonio Conte not to deny him a hat-trick in future Chelsea games
Eden Hazard has urged Antonio Conte to allow him to complete his hat-trick in future games following Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday.
The Belgium international was the star man at Stamford Bridge as he found the net twice against Rafa Benitez’s men.
But Hazard was denied the chance to score his third as Conte decided to replace him with Willian with 12 minutes remaining.
Asked if he was disappointed to be brought off by the Chelsea manager, Hazard told Sky Sports: ‘No, I think all the players want to play.
‘We play on Tuesday, so rest sometimes is good.
But of course, when I score two, I want to score a hat-trick.
‘But I’ll let the other boys score, no problem.’
