Chelsea duo Antonio Conte and Eden Hazard have been named Premier League player and manager of the month for October.
The duo got their hands on the monthly award earlier today before the start of gameweek 12 later this weekend.

Chelsea had a great month of October where The Blues won all their four matches, scoring 15 and not conceding a single goal.
During that run, Hazard managed 3 goals and an assist to propel Chelsea’s run last month after an indifferent strat to the season.
Conte deserves much of the credit after switching to a 3-man defense which has really brought the best out of his side.
We can expect similar tactics from Chelsea for the upcoming weeks which could put Chelsea in firm control of the title race. Chelsea are currently second in league table, only a point behind Liverpool.
