Diego Costa wins it for Chelsea

Arsenal laid down the gauntlet on Saturday by going top with their 3-1 win over Stoke.

Arsene Wenger’s side were only top on goals scored and despite West Brom’s fine resistance for much of the game at Stamford Bridge, it always felt like the Blues would get at least a point.

For much of the game, West Brom defended superbly, with at times, every man behind the ball for Tony Pulis’ side.

But, with 76 minutes on the clock, a lofted ball into the corner from Cesc Fabregas, saw Costa muscle out Gareth McAuley and then finish brilliantly past Ben Foster.

Diego Costa’s incredible season for Chelsea

Diego Costa has scored with six of his last nine shots on target in the Premier League.

Since the start of 2013-14, Diego Costa has now scored 71 goals in 104 league appearances.

From a Fantasy Premier League perspective, Costa has now bagged points in 13 of the last 15 gameweeks.

The Brazilian-born Spanish striker is the outright top goal scorer in the Premier League and if he continues like this, the title will be heading back to Stamford Bridge.
