Antonio Conte singled out three players in particular for their work and intensity following their solid 2-0 victory at Hull City.
Diego Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard all earned the praise of the Italian boss, who first spoke about his main striker being a huge threat in each match.
“For him [Costa] and for us it is fantastic,” Conte beamed at a press conference at the KCOM Stadium.
“He has scored 6 goals for us, but I think that Diego has the opportunity in every game to score goals, but it is important not only that he scored a goal, but also that he worked for the team.”
“For me, this is the most important thing, together with Willian and Hazard. It is important to work very hard and when you work very hard you have the opportunity to score goals.
“I am pleased not only for him, but for Willian and Hazard, they played a good game, a good performance, the right intensity. They tried to do what I want.
“I am pleased for all the players because we finished with a clean sheet. It is not normal to concede three or four goals. To finish with a clean sheet is very important.”
