Chelsea wrapped up three points with 30 minutes to go after Pedro Rodriguez combined brilliantly with Willian before the Spanish forward headed past Kasper Schmeichel.
Speaking to BT Sport during Chelsea’s 3-0 win against defending champions Leicester on Saturday evening, Hoddle praised Chelsea’s brisk tempo throughout the Premier League clash.
“Chelsea have been magnificent, they really have. They’ve passed the ball much quicker than I’ve seen them all season,” Hoddle said.
Chelsea are seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham although Liverpool can cut the west London side’s lead to five points with victory over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
