Paul Scholes singled out Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro for special praise after Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Leicester City on Saturday night.

The Blues returned to winning ways in style at the King Power Stadium as Antonio Conte’s men maintained their place at the top of the Premier League table.

Marcos Alonso scored once in each half, before Pedro added another late on to wrap up the three points for the visitors.

Hazard, Willian and Pedro particularly caught the eye of Scholes on Saturday night and the former Manchester United midfielder singled out the trio for special praise after the game.

Speaking on BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show, Scholes said: “They were excellent all over the pitch, in every area. The two midfield players controlled the game.

“Pedro, Hazard and Willian were brilliant with their movement and the way they came into midfield all the time.”

Chelsea are currently flying high at the top of the Premier League table as they prepare for their home clash against Hull City in the Premier League next weekend.
