Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admits he was angry with Eden Hazard for his cheeky chipped penalty in victory over Newcastle.

Despite the classy finish, Chelsea boss Conte couldn’t help but admit that the spot kick annoyed him.

“The chip annoyed me a little bit. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t, but it’s a great penalty,” he said.

“The most important thing to do is score it and then decide which way you want to kick it. The important thing is to score and it happened.

“Next time he must have a great attention as the goalkeeper will study the players that take the penalties. For me the most important thing is to score. It happened.”

At full-time Hazard himself admitted that the penalty was a risk.

“When I take the ball in my hands, it’s instinct,” he told Sky Sports. “I just want to do this. I want the goalkeeper to move because, if he doesn’t, I’m in trouble.”
