Jamie Redknapp has singled out the trio of Eden Hazard, Pedro and Diego Costa as the key to Chelsea’s upturn in form this season.

The trio have been in fine form for the Blues this term to help Antonio Conte’s men build a nine point lead at the top of the table and establish themselves as the firm favourites to win the title.

Hazard was named man of the match as Chelsea thrashed Arsenal 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to continue their fine form under Conte.

Pedro and Costa have also been regular fixtures in the Chelsea team this season to help the west London side top the table.

And Redknapp has singled out the trio as one of the keys to Chelsea’s impressive start to the season under their new manager.

Redknapp wrote in his column for The Daily Mail: “There have been fewer front threes better than Chelsea’s Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Pedro in the Premier League.

“I could not believe the number of times they exposed Arsenal’s back four on Saturday.

“Hazard and Pedro are so difficult to mark because opposition full backs are wary of coming inside for fear of leaving space for Chelsea’s wing backs to exploit.

“The aggression of Costa, genius of Hazard and boundless energy of Pedro is a perfect blend. They are key to Chelsea’s success.”
