Antonio Conte and Eden Hazard have been rewarded for Chelsea’s stunning form in October by scooping the Premier League manager and player of the month awards.
The Blues won all four of their top-flight games under the Italian coach in October after a winless run in September.
Among those results was the stunning 4-0 win over former manager Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side, a victory which has helped the Blues climb into the top four.
Conte becomes the sixth Chelsea manager to win the award after Claudio Ranieri, Jose Mourinho, Avram Grant, Carlo Ancelotti and Rafa Benitez.
For Hazard, the Belgian playmaker, was in exceptional form last month and scored three goals for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
The 25-year-old got a goal in the victories over Leicester, Manchester United and Southampton and has followed up that goalscoring form by scoring a brace in the 5-0 win over Everton earlier this month.
