Not looking at EPL table, working hard, insists Chelsea coach Conte

Diego Costa celebrates scoring the second goal with teammates

He added: "I am enjoying my football".

This was a controlled and calculated performance, and Chelsea now rise up the table to fourth, with just two points between them and current front-runners, Man City.

Costa is the League's top scorer with eight goals in 10 matches, while Hazard has struck five times - he managed four in the whole of the last campaign. "They can play their game with a strong defence and counter-attack".

"In this moment, it is not important to look at the table. It's more important to work very hard and trust the work will improve us". It was interesting to experience the quality and it took this goal just about a few minutes and this changes the game, the profile of the game.

Many were expecting a 3-5-2 formation, but Conte has tweaked the system to fit his crop of players, opting for a 3-4-3, which allows the wide attackers to cut inside, with the work of N'Kolo Kante and Nemanja Matic crucial in the centre of the pitch - as the pair are effectively doing the duties of three players.

Ivanovic still has a couple of years left in him at the top level and Eagles boss Alan Pardew is known to be on the look out for defensive reinforcements as he continues to struggle with injuries at the back.

"It's very hard to talk about the championship now".

"Sometimes you can win a game but you don't see it happening in the right way", he said. Then, when you start the second part, our ideas will be more clear. "To stay close to first place is good, and gives us great confidence".

The Spain striker got his now-customary goal, picking up a short pass from Hazard and darting inside before finding the corner.

Saints did not stop probing for a way back and nearly found it when Davis' header dropped onto the top of the crossbar before Charlie Austin had a goal chalked off for offside. They are playing fantastic.

"We have the flair players to go out and create and score goals, but we also need them to dig in and defend well, and we did that".

CHELSEA: Forster, Martina, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand (McQueen, 78 mins), Clasie (Boufal, 61 mins) Romeu, Davis, Redmond, Tadic (Hojbjerg, 78 mins), Austin.
