It has been a mixed start to the Premier League season for Chelsea.

The Blues began the campaign in imperious form under new boss Antonio Conte, picking up three wins from their opening three fixtures.

However, defeats to Premier League title rivals Arsenal and Liverpool have left the London club languishing in seventh place in the table.

With that in mind, here are Chelsea’s three best performers so far this term.

Diego Costa

After lots of talk during the summer about a potential return to Atletico Madrid, Diego Costa has started this campaign in stunning fashion.

Six goals in seven games sees Costa as the top goalscorer in the division and Conte will be hoping for more of the same from the Spain international if the West London side are to be in contention in May.

Eden Hazard

After a dismal campaign last year, Eden Hazard is really starting to rediscover his magic touch.

The winger looks to have restored his confidence again for the Blues and fans are beginning to see the brilliant Belgian at his best once again.

Quick, fleet-footed with and with infectious creativity, Hazard is the one that will lead Chelsea’s title charge this year.


The final member of Chelsea’s terrific trio has also been in good form so far this season.

Willian stood out as the shining light in a year of disappointment at Stamford Bridge last campaign and is an integral part of this Chelsea side.

With two strikes to his name already this season, the winger can hit the back of the net and will surely weigh in with vital goals as the season progresses.
