Ex-Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou spoke after the Blues’ home win against Tottenham last time out.
Diego Costa scored 10 goals in Premier League so far and the Ivorian star underlined the Spaniard’s great shape: “Diego Costa did well already under Mourinho but he didn’t quite have the same quality last year as he has shown this year, he needed new motivation and that is what Conte brought to him” Kalou told Goal.
“If Diego Costa is top scorer then they will win the league; it works the other way around as well. The two go together. Eden is a great player too; he can do anything with the ball”.
“He is carrying the team with Diego Costa. He is important but he requires the whole team to be amazing. When the team plays amazing, it is easy for him to go forward and to score”.
Chelsea are currently leading the table with 31 points and Salomon Kalou believes that manager Antonio Conte is showing a winning character.
“Chelsea can win the league, of course, because they started very strong; they have shown that they have the fight for the title. They have great character”.
“This team has done something difficult – come back from last season where they had a bad time and shown a winning character. I am sure that they have the chance to win it.”
