Di Matteo hails team effort

Published Add your comment

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo believes all of his players deserve credit for the club's unbeaten start to the new season despite Eden Hazard once again grabbing the headlines in a 2-0 win at home to Newcastle.

The Blues returned to the top of the Barclays Premier League thanks to a third win in a week. Summer signing Hazard opened the scoring from the penalty spot and then provided an assist for Fernando Torres to seal the points in first-half stoppage time.

The Belgium international has been central to the wins over Newcastle, Reading and Wigan and Torres has started to look more like the £50million man brought in from Liverpool in January 2011, but said: "It's not just them two, they have a good link-up with (Juan) Mata and the other midfield players."
