Chelsea striker on Fabregas and Hazard: They make things easy

Loic Remy

Loic Remy has been speaking about his new team-mates today.

Last weekend saw French international striker Loic Remy come on for his debut for Chelsea against Swansea City. The former QPR striker wasted little time endearing himself to his new fans either - as he bagged a debut goal in the 4-2 win against The Swans.

Unfortunately for Remy his goal was almost a side show to the main event - Diego Costa.

The Spanish international has been sensational since arriving from Atletico Madrid for £32 million this summer. He bagged an important hat-trick against Swansea to take his tally for the season to an incredible seven goals in four games.

With that in mind it is clear that Remy is a big fan of his striking rival, and that he feels he will improve by playing alongside him.

However, he was more inclined to give credit to the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard - who make it so easy for them to score goals for the club. He told the London Evening Standard:

"To play with these kind of players - Eden, Cesc and the others - makes you comfortable. It makes things easier as a striker if you have these players behind you. Eden can deliver good passes, Fabregas the same. Diego Costa is on fire. He is a very good player and, at the moment, is untouchable. It’s good for the group. The level of the team has gone up. But there is no secret. Before anything else, you need to work.”

Tonight Remy will hope to make an appearance, even if Costa is likely to start. And when he does he will certainly plan on putting the ball in the back of the net. With the backing of Hazard and Fabregas that should not be a chore.
