Man Utd icon Giggs impressed by new-look Chelsea midfield

Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs is impressed by Chelsea's new-look midfield.

Juan Mata underlined his growing importance to the side by capping a brilliant all-round display with two goals while new signings Eden Hazard and Oscar continued to impress.

Giggs can see how the team is evolving.

He said: "I think it is a different sort of Chelsea team. In past years they've had Didier Drogba's power and the runs through from midfield of Frank Lampard.

"We've always thought of Chelsea as a big, strong, powerful team.

"They've still got that but they've added the likes of Oscar and Eden Hazard, and Juan Mata is into his second season and coming along nicely.

"They've got clever players who can play in the pockets and make it difficult for teams."
