​Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has described his in-form winger Eden Hazard as 'priceless' ahead of his side's trip to Burnley this weekend.


Hazard has put last season's horror show behind him and has scored 10 goals in 23 Premier League games this term.


Speaking in his ​pre-match press conference, Conte said: "I think Eden for sure is a top player, he’s in a level which is very high. But I don’t see the problem because we don’t want to sell him. He hasn’t a price now."

Hazard's display against Arsenal in Chelsea's 3-1 win last weekend has lead to many suggesting the Belgian will win the PFA Player of the Year award at the end of the campaign.


Conte admitted he wasn't very good at "pricing a player" but very few Chelsea fans will disagree with the former Juventus boss' view of Hazard being "priceless". However some were confused as to why the former Lens winger was substituted late on in the game at Stamford Bridge.

Conte quickly responded, by explaining it was a kind gesture, rather than a cause for concern, saying: "In the last game for sure I wanted to give him a great applause from our fans because he deserved this for the game."


Since Conte's decision to change to 3-4-3 formation Chelsea have looked a completely different side to the one that struggled last year. Hazard has been used as the main comparison, but it seems as though every player has welcomed Conte's changes.
