  • Olivier Giroud impressed on his first Chelsea start

eEden Hazard has revealed the secret behind his second Chelsea goal on Monday - taking advice from national team coach Thierry Henry.

In the 71st minute, he received a pass from substitute Alvaro Morata, and linked past defender Jonny Evans to lift the ball into the net.

The victory - just a third in 11 in all competitions - sees Chelsea climb back above Tottenham into fourth and eases pressure on the Italian.

The champions had lost games they were expected to win at a canter against Bournemouth and Watford, and Conte admitted that confidence was low.

Conte expressed concern this week that Chelsea's record signing could be forced to miss the rest of the season with a mystery back injury.

Antonio Conte has admitted that Andreas Christensen has developed into a key player for Chelsea FC this season.

He left the pitch to applause in the 70th minute, his head swathed in bandages after he was kicked in a goalmouth melee in the first half.

"We showed great character defensively and offensively", Hazard said.

"We want to go into the next round and then prepare for the Barcelona game, then (Manchester's) United and City".

Alvaro Morata was a shock inclusion on the Chelsea bench after nearly a month out with a back injury and the Spain global turned in a lively half-hour cameo after replacing Giroud, who hobbled out of the action with a bandaged head - the price of a bruising tussle with West Brom's centre-backs.

"He is a good point of reference". "The only way is to try to win, play good football and I think until the end we will continue to live with it".

In spite of a lively start they managed one shot on target.

"He was distraught really because his personality and the way he has worked at our place have been of the highest order", manager Alan Pardew said of the on-loan Liverpool striker, whose career has been dogged by injuries.

"Losing Daniel Sturridge after three minutes was a blow in itself", said Pardew.

Chelsea host Hull City in the FA Cup on Friday before the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie against Barcelona on Tuesday.
