An Eden Hazard second half lone goal gave Chelsea a narrow victory over Bournemouth on Saturday.

The 1-0 win not only settles the doubt over Conte’s future but also gave The Blues a hold on fourth spot, nine points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Chelsea manager Conte had reacted angrily to suggestions in the build-up to this game that fellow Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti was being lined up as his successor amid talk of dissent among the London club's squad.
 
Those concerns were stilled as Chelsea showed enough resolve to overcome a determined Bournemouth side whose display suggested they are capable of moving out of the bottom three, with Hazard’s 51st-minute goal proving the difference between the two sides.

Conte's outburst came after a positive week for Chelsea that began with an impressive comeback to beat Watford and continued with the midweek League Cup defeat of another Premier League side in Everton.

Hazard made the breakthrough in the sixth minute after the break in the Saturday encounter.

Morata did well to fend off two challenges in the middle of the pitch before chipping a pass towards Hazard that Simon Francis should have cut out.

The Bournemouth defender failed to reach the ball, handing Hazard a clear run on goal that was capped by an angled finish that exposed Begovic's failure to cover his near post.
