Ekun Samuel, 10 December 2016
After a Month of scintillating display from the Blues, Antonio Conte, Diego Costa  and Pedro has all been awarded for their outstanding performances and contribution to the their team, being League table toppers so far this season, which has lead them clinching the prizes for different categories of award for the month of November.
Premier League top goal scorer Diego Costa, was named th EA Sports Player of the Month for his outstanding performances for the team, and his goals always standing out at a time where it matters most. After providing a goal and an assist in the side’s 5-0 victory over Everton, the division’s topscorer added a decisive strike against Middlesbrough and reached double digits for the season. Diego Costa ensured the award stays with the Blues after Eden Hazard was awarded same prize last season. The Spain international also set up the winner in Chelsea’s comeback to win 2-1 against Tottenham Hotspur, rounding off a fruitful month from both a team and individual perspective. The Chelsea hitman has this to say: ‘Things are going well at the moment. The team is doing well and this shows that things are working out for me,’ Diego Costa said. ‘The team performance has a bearing on this individual award. If we were bottom, I doubt I’d have won it. So, it’s down to my team-mates, thanks to the club and hopefully we can continue this winning run. Thanks also to the fans for this award but the most important thing for me and the club is that we are up there fighting for the league at the end of the season.’ This is the second time Diego Costa has been awarded the accolade. He was recognised for his blistering start to English football in August 2014. It is the 18th time for a Chelsea player and our seventh Manager and Player of the Month double.   Pedro completed the historic clean sweep by claiming the Goal of the Month trophy. His curling equaliser at Stamford Bridge against Tottenham stood out among a shortlist of eight stunning goals, including Hazard’s second versus Everton. ‘This is the best goal I have scored for Chelsea,’ Pedro said. ‘The game was very difficult, it was a derby, and the goal came at the right moment for us. It was important to score before half-time. Thank you to the fans for voting for me. I am very happy with this award.’ All three awards were decided by a combination of votes from a panel of experts and Premier League supporters. The picks reflect Chelsea’s promising lead-up to the festive period which has opened up a three-point gap at the top of the Premier League table.
