Antonio Conte has revealed he guided Eden Hazard back to his best by telling the Belgium midfielder to both play and act like a superstar.

Hazard's masterful finish helped Chelsea inch ever closer to the Premier League title with Saturday's 3-1 win at Bournemouth.

I am happy for Eden and he scored a good goal; he is doing a good job, good work during the game.

He is a great player, a great talent and he must understand that he is a great player and never forget this.

I think that every coach's real function is not only to win. A good coach tries to improve the players and also tries to find the right way to work with them - tactical aspects and physical aspects - to show them the situations [in which] they can improve.

I think a good coach, a good manager must do this, not only win [matches] or buy the best players in the world.

– Antonio Conte to reporters
