Chelsea vs Bournemouth Pedro double fires record-breaking Chelsea

Robbie Savage

And Nevin believes the options available to Conte are such that Chelsea's rivals will have a hint of jealousy as clubs such as second-placed Liverpool try and overcome their own injury woes while maintaining the pressure on the Blues.

"To win 12 games in a row is not easy in this league".

Pedro scored twice, either side of a second-half penalty from the excellent Eden Hazard, as Chelsea continued their relentless charge and surpassed the 11 consecutive victories secured under Carlo Ancelotti in 2009.

"It's a fantastic run, but it's important to continue that now".

Next weekend as well only the Premier League's players are going to take the field.

"We can't look at the table but just need to keep this mentality".

Conte was afforded a more restful second half after Francis felled Hazard in the box and the Belgium star put the spot-kick away for his 50th Premier League goal.

"We try to do something that we didn't do in the past".

The win meant the Blues have now won 12 Premier League matches in a row, while also firming their grip at the top of the table. "I thought (Hazard) was outstanding today — his movement and ability to turn on the ball so quickly".

"We played a good game against Bournemouth, we could have scored more, but I am happy with the attitude of the players".

Fourth-place Arsenal, who have lost two of their last three in the league, are now nine points behind Chelsea in the table ahead of Saturday's clash with Crystal Palace.

"From these 12 games we took 36 points".

On the back of a rather lacklustre attempt, to put it kindly, at defending the 2014-15 Premier League title, Chelsea were expected to go through an extended transitional period, even with a proven victor like Antonio Conte as the new man in charge. "I think that's the sign of a top team".

Conte opted to employ Hazard as a central striker, forcing 23-year-old Belgian global forward Michy Batshuayi to continue his wait for a first league start since his £33 million ($40.5 million, P2,015,535,396) arrival from Marseille. Pedro's sublime first goal came as a result of some attractive interplay with Spain worldwide teammate Cesc Fabregas that also involved Eden Hazard.

"But now the opponents try to give everything because they want to be first".

His first year at Chelsea was one to forget under Mourinho, but now, with Antonio Conte as his coach, Pedro's really found his niche and shown just how vital he can be. This could be viewed as a blessing in disguise as it means he will be rested and available for selection a few days later, when Chelsea travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham.
