Eden Hazard's dazzling double sent Chelsea surging to the top of the English Premier League with an electrifying 5-0 victory over Everton on Saturday. "We all know he's a great talent". To put that into perspective, Kante, who has received much adulation for his ability to break up play in the middle of the park, has only won 22.

Diego Costa has had a hand in more goals than any other Premier League player this season (9 goals, 3 assists).

"What was important was to win, play good football and bring our principles to the pitch". It is important for me that the fans support me but also important they support the players every minute of every game.

N'Golo Kante has challenged his Chelsea teammates to maintain the stunning form that has powered them into title contention when they return from the global break. The forward then cut in on his right foot before bending the ball past a helpless Maarten Stekelenburg to land the game's opening blow after 18 minutes.

Four days after stunning Barcelona 3-1, City conceded in stoppage time to 14th-place Middlesbrough when Marten de Roon planted a header past goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

The west London side have scored 16 goals and have kept five successive clean sheets in their last five Premier League games in victories over Hull City, Leicester City, Manchester United, Southampton and Everton.

Chelsea's 5-0 win over Everton was the best 90 minutes of football John Motson has ever seen during his career as a BBC commentator.

Pedro has mentioned, "It's good for us, in the last five games we haven't conceded a goal and we've played very well. It was fantastic. It is a pity we have to stop for the global break", he said.

"Eden Hazard played an impressive game".

When John Terry was injured at the start of the season, all of the pundits discussed how, without Terry, Chelsea wouldn't even be competing for a European spot - but since Conte has changed to a back three, they haven't needed the ex-England worldwide.

"I am pleased for the players, because they were fantastic".

"When you have this type of performance, you are very happy", said the Italian.

Chelsea look a completely different team from the sluggish outfit that struggled under Jose Mourinho last season and this performance was a real statement of intent.
