Antonio Conte: Keeping quiet over Oscar

Antonio Conte has said Eden Hazard is pushing for a return to the starting eleven, but would not reveal anything about Oscar’s future.

The Belgian missed the 1-0 victory at Sunderland but has come through unscathed in the Blues’ final training session and could provide a timely boost as Chelsea chase an 11th consecutive victory.

“We have to see if I decide to put Eden in the starting 11, but he is fit, today he trained, and then for sure not only for him but for the other players I give this night to decide because it is not easy to play three games in six days,” said manager Conte.

However, he was less informative on midfielder Oscar, who could be set for a £60million switch to China.

He added: “I don’t know exactly the amount or the situation but I think in the right moment you know the situation.”
