Antonio Conte’s men were in blazing hot form on Saturday night, as Chelsea registered a massive 5-0 win over Everton to storm their way to the top of the Premier League table.

Blues’ star Eden Hazard – who seems to have returned back to his best – opened the scoring with a delightful angled finish in the 19th minute, with new summer signing Marcos Alonso scoring the second a minute later, by cooling slotting the ball between Everton keeper Maarten Stekelenburg’s legs, and into the net.

Diego Costa added the third 3 minutes before the break, to cap off a terrific first half performance at the Stamford Bridge.

It was more of the same in the second half for Conte’s side, as Hazard scored his second of the night by combining brilliantly with Pedro, who later added the fifth and final goal himself.

Antonio Conte was delighted with the way his team played, and he let it show in the post-match interview.

“It was a great game, a good performance,” said the Italian. “It is important for confidence to be top of the league. We have to continue as Everton is now in the past.

“The players deserve this because they show me great commitment and I can tell they are working very hard. The team has more balance defensively, but we don’t lose our offensive situation. We are creating more chances to score goals.”

He also heaped praise on Eden Hazard, who was named the Man of the Match not only for his brace, but also for tormenting the Everton back-line throughout the game.

“Eden Hazard played an impressive game,” Conte added. “We all know he is a talented player. I see he is working a lot for the team and his team-mates are very happy for this. He must continue – he is showing his talent in every game.”

Chelsea supporters were equally pleased with their team’s performance, and here’s how they reacted on twitter following the 5-0 rout:
