Hazard the striker: Conte's tactic pays off with assist for Willian


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte opted to play Eden Hazard as a central striker in their 1-1 draw against Barcelona, leaving both traditional forwards Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud on the bench. Conte's tactic worked, as Hazard was a constant threat to Barca's defence, eventually setting up an assist for Willian's opening goal on 62 minutes. Unfortunately, all of Hazard and Willian's work was undone by teammate Andreas Christensen when his poor pass led to Lionel Messi's equaliser.
