During a candid interview with Chelsea FC official website, both Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois appreciated the new Chelsea marksman Diego Costa.
‘We know he can score in big games,’ said Hazard. ‘He had three chances in the game and put two in the net, and it is very important for him and us that he scores.’ (Source: Chelsea FC)
Hazard did show his dissapointment over the defensive display put by the club though and justified Jose Mourinho’s frustration. However, at the same time he praised chelsea’s creative midfield and attack who created many chances and converted 6 of them as well.
‘Of course there were some errors but we merited the win because we created so many good chances. We scored some beautiful goals.
‘It is normal the manager won’t be happy if you concede three goals but fortunately, we scored six.’ (Source: Chelsea FC)
Thibaut Courtois, who made his third appearance for the club also emphasized on the frantic pace at which the game against Everton was played.
‘The first five to 10 minutes we started really great with two goals,’ said the keeper, ‘but after that the game was more for Everton because they had more of the attack and just before half-time they made it 1-2.
‘So we knew the second half they would have a good start. At 1-3, you think maybe that the game is over but then the 1-3 becomes 2-3 and then the 2-4 becomes 3-4, but then we could finish the game off.
‘So it was a strange game, maybe a nice game for the fans to watch but we made some mistakes. We need to work hard, but the most important thing was the three points which we got. (Source: Chelsea FC)
We definitely expect a solid performance from him and the team in the upcomming matches. All the best to Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois.
