Chelsea’s Conte, Costa, Pedro claim EPL Nov. awards

Chelsea Antonio Conte takes the manager’s award for the second month in succession while Diego Costa is named player of the month for the first time since August 2014, as they claim the November Premier League’s monthly awards.

Chelsea won all three Premier League games in November, scoring eight goals and conceding just one.

Costa scored in a 5-0 defeat of Everton at Stamford Bridge and also got the winner in his side’s 1-0 victory at Middlesbrough, while Pedro’s long-range goal in a 2-1 win over Tottenham, meanwhile, has been voted November’s best.

Chelsea are now on an eight-match winning run in the league and have a three-point lead at the top, but Conte believes it is too early to label them favourites for the title.
