The Belgium international bagged a brace as the Premier League champions came from behind to secure three points at Stamford Bridge.

However, the Italian tactician reveals he was annoyed with Hazard's Panenka penalty that sealed the win.

"The chip annoyed me a little bit. I'd be lying if I said it didn't, but it's a great penalty," Conte was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

"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."
