Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has explained the reasoning behind his dropping of superstar Eden Hazard.
Last season's PFA Player of the Year was dropped to the bench and only played seven minutes in the Blues' 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.
"I left out Hazard because we are conceding lots of goals. We need to defend better," the manager told Sky Sports.
"When you don't have the ball, quality means nothing and what means (thumps chest)... you have or you don't have.
"It was just a tactical decision, leaving super quality on the bench, but bringing tactical discipline and hoping that the team could be solid.
"Willian and Pedro did amazing defensive work and allowed the midfield players to be very comfortable.
"I continue that way, or he comes in our direction and tries to replicate the same work that Willian and Pedro did."
Hazard has played 12 games in all competitions this season, but is yet to score a goal.
Chelsea climbed to 11th place on the log after their third win of the season.
