Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard says that the club's 3-4-3 formation suits his style of play.

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has suggested that he is gaining confidence from playing in Antonio Conte's 3-4-3 formation.

Since reverting to the system, Chelsea have recorded wins over both Hull City and Leicester City without conceding a goal, and Hazard has admitted that he is enjoying being given more freedom in the final third.

The 25-year-old told the club's official website: "When you are strong defensively you bring confidence to all the team, and it is more easy to score goals.

"For the strikers, we have more freedom, and even when we lose the ball if we press together we can get it back, and it is a good system for Chelsea.

"It is always good to be on the scoresheet. I am a striker so I try every game to score and my confidence is good."

Teammate N'Golo Kante has also spoken of his admiration of Conte's tactics.
