Roberto Di Matteo hails the team after Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres score in a 2-0 Chelsea win.

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has refused to single out players for praise after his side's 2-0 win over Newcastle United.

Di Matteo has insisted that Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres, who scored the goals in the victory, would not be able to perform without the rest of their teammates.

"It's not just [Hazard and Torres], they have a good link-up with Juan Mata and the other midfield players," Di Matteo said.

"Thanks to the team [Hazard] has been able to slide in and play very comfortably with the others.

"I know you focus on the goalscorers but I think it was a good performance considering it was our third game in six days. The demand was high playing against tough opposition today."

Ashley Cole praised the impact of Hazard after last night's game.
