​Conte: Chelsea's Hazard has potential to be compared with Messi

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about the form of midfielder Eden Hazard, who has scored seven goals for the Blues this season and was named the Premier League Player of the Month for October.

"He [Hazard] is playing fantastic football," said Conte. "He's working very well during training and has great commitment to the team. In this moment he's a great player and working a lot for the team."

Asked if he thinks Hazard is up there with the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Conte said: "He has all the potential in his career and is putting himself in the team. It's not right at this moment to compare him to others."
