Antonio Conte on Eden Hazard as he returns for only his second start of the season following injury: "Last season Eden played a really important season, played very well and he was very important for us in winning the league. Last season, he showed in every game great talent, to be a really good player, a top player. This competition is very important for him, but I think it's important for the team. This competition brings you to another level. I think he has all the possibilities to do this. He's a really top player. Now he's totally fit and in contention for Wednesday's game. I think it's the right moment."
