Returning from an ankle injury, Chelsea winger Eden Hazard produced an incredible display in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The 26-year-old Belgium was the Man of the Match as Antonio Conte's side secured a hugely impressive 2-1 win away at Atletico Madrid.

His Italian coach was delighted with his "amazing" performance.

"We must be very happy because Eden Hazard's performance was amazing," said Conte. "It was the first big game for him after his injury.

"His answer was fantastic and positive. He had a great link with Alvaro Morata and I am happy for Michy Batshuayi but also Willian played very well."

Chelsea have now taken six points from their opening two Champions League group games and are in a very strong position to progress to the last 16.

The Blues are unbeaten since their shock opening day of the season defeat at home to Burnley.

"We are playing very well. We have quality in the team and we want to win every game. It was not easy today but we did it."

Chelsea beat Manchester City in both their meetings last season but Pep Guardiola's in-form side are unquestionably playing the best football since his arrival.
