Posted: 5 March 2018 Time: 18:00

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has launched a scathing attack on head coach Antonio Conte's tactics following the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday.

Hazard was selected as a false-nine against the Citizens and toiled away with the Londoners not registering a single shot on target - as striker's Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud watched on from the visitors' bench.

The Belgian ace eventually made way in the 89th minute after a frustrating outing, as the Blues slipped five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham in the race for the final UEFA Champions League spot.

"When you leave the pitch you have the impression that you've ran, but that you haven't played a game of football - that's a pity," he told Belgian publication HLN.

"We could have played on for three hours and I wouldn't touch a ball. Only at the end it went better.

"When the manager plays me up front I try to give everything. But we haven't played a good game and for me personally, it's difficult to play a good game when you only touch the ball three times."
