Conte insists Title Race Not Over Till End;   Hazard Set To Face Palace


Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has confirmed that  star winger, Eden Hazard is fit to face Crystal Palace in Saturday's English Premier League fixture, reports

Hazard missed the midweek win at Sunderland with a knock. ‎Though Conte admits the Belgian is  fit for the game, he is unsure whether his key star will  instantly reclaim his place in the team.


"Yeah I think he's fit," the Italian manager states during his pre- match Press Conference on Frday.


"Then I have to see to decide to put Eden in the starting eleven , but he's fit today. He trained with us.


"For sure, not only for him but also for the other players. I have this night to decide because it's not easy to play three games in six days.


"It's important to see every single detail and then take the best decision for them."


Chelsea sit at the top of the table, six points ahead of Liverpool and Arsenal who occupy  second and third place respectively.


It was a remarkable change in fortune for a side that struggled in the Premier League last season, but Conte refused to sing his own praises for now.


"I don't like to talk about the past . I like to be focussed, to concentrate on the present because the present is very important to achieve great results in this season.


"We  all know that until the end we have to fight a lot to stay with other teams that are also fighting for the title.


"Now the situation seems easy  but it is not really in my experience. We are on top of the table  with six points gap to the second team but we need to fight."
