Chelsea fans are buzzing following their 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening – and rightly so.

Antonio Conte has the Blues playing a unique brand of football that has injecting a level of confidence into a side that is virtually unrecognisable from last season.

From Thibaut Courtois between the sticks to Diego Costa leading the line, it seems every Chelsea player has found their best form since the Italian switched to a 3-4-3 formation.

To underline just how well the west Londoners are playing right now, they had scored 17 goals while keeping six cleans sheets in the Premier League prior to hosting Spurs.

Such domination is certain to breed confidence throughout an entire squad and is perhaps why it is difficult to recall the last time a Chelsea player had a bad day at the office.

Pedro is one man who has certainly benefited from working under Conte – but given his erratic performances for the club since arriving in the winter of 2015, he is often an easy target for frustrated Blues supporters.

The Spaniard was far from his impressive best for much of the first half against Tottenham, often getting caught in possession by a high-pressing Spurs outfit.

His shaky start prompted a number Chelsea fans to not only agree he should be benched and replaced by Willian for the second period, but also question his place at the club.

Those supporters quickly changed their tune, however, as the former Barcelona star put the home side back on level terms with a world-class equaliser just before the half-time whistle.

The curling finish took his tally two goals and two assists in his last four outings, which led to an outpouring of praise from the Stamford Bridge faithful.

Social media never fails to highlight the difference a single action can make to what fans think of a player – whether in a positive or negative way.

With another three points under their belt, Chelsea fans ought to be content with how the team is travelling for the time being.
