Antonio Conte has been playing Hazard in the wrong Position - Gianfranco Zola

Chelsea Legend Gianfranco Zola has revealed  Antonio Conte has been playing Eden Hazard in wrong position this season which have caused the highly rated winger to struggle.


In many games this season, Eden Hazard has been used as a false nine in the absence of Alvaro Morata. And with Olivier Giroud joining from Arsenal, Hazard should return to his normal position on the left wing.

In an interview with Evening Standard, Gianfranco Zola shared is view on Hazard playing as a false nine and this was what he had to say: "When Hazard plays deeper, it allows him to come off the pressure and run players. It's perfect for him."

"He is very similar to what I was as a player. If I had to be the main striker and stay around the box, it would limit my possibilities, my strength."

"While if I had more space to go around and look for the ball, my game was much better."

"I'm sure having a main striker will help Hazard's game."

"We saw in the last two games that Chelsea were not as good in the 20 meters."



Should Antonio Conte play Hazard as a false nine tonight or play him in left-wing and use Olivier Giroud up-front.
