However, it wasn’t just their players that displayed their quality skills on the pitch.

That’s because their manager, Antonio Conte, also showed an unbelievable piece of skill during the first-half.

Hazard tried playing a long ball out wide to the left to a rampaging Marcos Alonso. However, the Belgian overhit his ball, which landed in Chelsea’s technical area.

But his Italian manager showed that he’s still got it with an effortless touch with the outside of his foot which killed the ball dead.

It was delightful. Take a look:

And his touch didn’t go unnoticed by fans on Twitter as they took to social media to rave about the Italian’s skills whilst wearing a suit. Check out the best reaction:

Of course, we shouldn’t be too surprised given his incredible playing career. The former central midfielder played 296 Serie A matches for Juventus, winning five league titles and a Champions League trophy.

While Conte will no doubt be delighted with his beautiful first touch, he will be happier with his side’s performance. They dominated the match throughout the 90 minutes and earned their fifth league win of the campaign, take them level on points with Arsenal and Liverpool.
