Diego Costa opens up about Eden Hazard at Chelsea this season

Diego Costa heaps praise on Eden Hazard following his brilliant displays for Chelsea this season

Diego Costa has heaped praise on Eden Hazard following the Belgian’s upturn in form at Chelsea this season.

The 25-year-old struggled to produce consistent performances for the west London club last season as the Blues ended up 10th in the Premier League table and with their title defence in tatters.

However, Hazard has been in superb form for the Blues this term and was named as the Premier League player of the month for October following his brilliant displays.

The Belgian has begun to show the kind of performances that earned him the PFA player of the year award in the 2014-15 season as he helped to inspire Chelsea to a Premier League and League Cup double.

And Costa has been hugely impressed by Hazard’s improved performances for Chelsea this season.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Costa said: “Eden is just incredible.

“He’s the sort of player who is able to win a match by himself. He’s extraordinary. There are very few people like him.

“He’s very confident in what he does and he is transmitting that confidence to us.”
