Arsenal legend: These two Chelsea players will rip teams to shreds

Ian Wright says Diego Costa and Eden Hazard can single-handedly rip teams to shreds for Chelsea

Ian Wright has claimed that Diego Costa and Eden Hazard can single-handedly rip teams to shreds when they are on form for Chelsea.

The Blues pair have been two of the Premier League’s standout performers so far this season under new manager Antonio Conte to help the west London side top the Premier League table.

Hazard was voted as the Premier League’s player of the month for November after a string of sparkling displays helped the Blues continue their winning run in the top flight.

And Costa has been in top goal-scoring form for Conte’s side to help the Blues mount a serious assault on the Premier League title.

Arsenal legend Wright is a big fan of the Chelsea duo and believes that they provide a deadly partnership for the Blues.

Speaking on The Sun Goals podcast, Wright said: “If you give Chelsea too much time and space, Costa and Hazard will rip you to shreds.

“If you make it a battle, Costa will come up with the goods and get something.”
