Chelsea manager Antonio Conte blames tiredness for home defeat to Manchester City

"It is important to win and especially with the way we played".

With Chelsea back in the Champions League, Conte said Hazard also had the opportunity to test himself against the best.

Hazard, 26, has been eased back into the team by manager Antonio Conte after undergoing ankle surgery and following three substitute appearances in the league, he is expected to return to the starting line-up against City.

Conte will be looking to cut down Manchester City's lead at the top of the league table with a win over the current leaders in west London.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is pushing Eden Hazard to work harder in training.

It was Chelsea's second home defeat, after losing 3-2 to Burnley in their opening day fixture.

Alvaro Morata has scored seven goals for Chelsea since arriving from Real Madrid.

For Manchester City, Gabriel Jesus has replaced Sergio Aguero from the side that beat Crystal Palace 5-0 last weekend, with the Argentine sidelined with a rib injury.

Such work may not grab the headlines like a Morata hat-trick can, but the job Kante is doing remains as pivotal to Chelsea's cause as any - if Manchester City are going to continue their title charge at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, they will have to get through Kante first. "When you have to play a massive game only (three) days later, you must consider the fatigue in the legs of your players".

He said: "Eden, in every game, he finds a way to be decisive during a game".

Meanwhile Barcelona needed an own goal from Sebastian Coates in the 49th minute to give them a 1-0 win over Sporting Lisbon to maintain their 100 percent record in the Champions League and Liga Santander this season.
