Eden Hazard cracked a joke at Antonio Conte's expense after 4-0 Chelsea win

Belgian winger Eden Hazard ran the show on Saturday lunchtime as Chelsea thrashed Brighton 4-0 at the AMEX Stadium.

The 27-year-old was the Man of the Match and scored a brace to send the Blues above Liverpool into third.

Antonio Conte was pleased with the performance but wants attention to immediately turn to Wednesday's Carabao Cup semi-final against Arsenal.

"Eden Hazard scored twice. For us, it's important Hazard, Willian and Moses all score," said the former Juventus and Italy boss.

"But, from tomorrow, every single player that scored today has to forget he scored and must try and score again against Arsenal.

"This is the most important thing: to be happy for the performance but, from tomorrow, to think about another important game against Arsenal, another important situation to try to help the team to win."

Hazard's cheeky comment about Conte

Speaking to ChelseaTV, Hazard and Willian were in good spirits after they had combined brilliantly on the pitch.

The tricky winger pushed the boundaries by sending a message to his Italian coach.

Willian and Hazard were cracking up - but it's highly unlikely that Conte will find it quite so funny.

Conte won't be impressed but Hazard - still yet to sign a new contract - is pretty much undroppable at Stamford Bridge.

Signed from Everton for £15m earlier this month, Ross Barkley heaped praise on Chelsea's Belgian superstar.

"I had never thought about leaving Everton over the years but it was getting to a point where I felt like I needed to make a move to improve as a player, and playing with the level of players here like Eden Hazard will only make you better.

"You can’t put many players up there with Hazard, he is unbelievable, he is up there with the best in the world, I have been training here for a couple of weeks and you can see how sharp he is.

"I am not the same type of player but if I could get anywhere near his level now I would be made up."
