I think he has the real potential to become one of the best but he has to win'.

Importantly, the 25-year-old appears to have quickly established an understanding with Hazard at Stamford Bridge, with the attacking duo combining brilliantly for Conte's men. I remember during the European Championship with the national team we finished first in our group and played against Spain, then Germany and, if we'd beaten Germany, we'd have to play France.

Real Madrid will need to look for a replacement for their greatest ever goalscorer and Hazard could be the perfect man.

For me Ballon d'Or is Ballon d'Or but for a coach Kante has to win - for every coach. You don't want your best players to leave and we need him at the club. The Blues notably won the contest in 2012, and are the last English side to lift the trophy. The reserve fixture at the Wanda Metropolitan, however, was a different story but thankfully at the end of the day didn't have any baring on how the group ended.

"Eden has the right characteristics to try to fight with these giants", Conte added.

"Next time he must have a great attention as the goalkeeper will study the players that take the penalties". He's very strong, he may be little but he is strong, trust me!

Besiktas are one of four sides to have completed the group stage undefeated along with Tottenham, Liverpool and Barcelona.

"Chelsea shouldn't fear anyone at the moment".

"The past is not important for these players". Meanwhile, under the tutelage of Diego Simeone, Los Rojiblancos made it to the final in 2014 and 2016, only to be twice thwarted by cross-town rivals Real Madrid.

"For sure it is different, this type of game". Score the second and they want to score the third.

He told Goal: "It is his first season. But he has to win [trophies]".

"I think when you reach this level, it's very difficult to tell this team is good or this team is no good", the former Italy CT said at a Press conference. It won't be easy against West Ham.

Chelsea will be without David Luiz, whose knee injury remains without a timetable, and Danny Drinkwater, who is ill.

Chelsea's N'Golo Kante finished eighth in the voting for the 2017 Ballon d'Or.
