Conte spoke to BT Sport after the game and the Italian said: "It was a good performance, I am pleased. I think we played good football, we created chances to score and kept a fifth clean sheet in a row."


Hazard was exemplary in the 5-0 win and Conte had this to say about his performance: "Eden Hazard played an impressive game. We all know he is a talented player, I see he is working a lot for the team and his teammates are very happy for this. He must continue, he is showing his talent in every game."

Spanish wing-back Marcos Alonso signed for Chelsea in the summer; he had already gained some experience of English football a couple of years back while on loan at Sunderland and Conte has been impressed with how he has adapted to English football once again, 


"It wasn't easy for Marcos Alonso to arrive in England, change leagues, so I am very happy for him."


Chelsea are now top of the league and after five wins in five league games, they are now plenty of people's picks for the title - but the Italian isn't getting carrier away: 


"It is fantastic to be top of the league, today it was important to play and to win."
