Diego Costa produced a remarkable performance to help Chelsea secure a 3-1 victory away at Manchester City on Saturday.
 
Chelsea’s eighth successive Premier League win cemented their place at the top of the table – but their victory at Etihad Stadium ended in chaos as Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho were sent off in injury time.
 
Antonio Conte’s side delivered an impressive statement of intent as they cut City apart on the break after going behind to Gary Cahill’s own goal on the stroke of half-time, when he diverted Jesus Navas’s cross beyond Thibaut Courtois.
 
The game turned on Kevin De Bruyne’s 56th minute miss with City in control, crashing Navas’s cross against the bar from inside the six-yard area.

Chelsea were level on the hour when Diego Costa outmuscled Nicolas Otamendi to score and they were ahead ten minutes later when substitute Willian raced clear to beat City keeper Claudio Bravo with ease.
 
Eden Hazard completed a magnificent win for Chelsea with another goal on the break, showing too much pace for Aleksandar Kolarov to wrap up three vital points.

It is unlikely either Manchester City or Chelsea have heard the last of a shameful conclusion to a high-class game of football as players and officials from both sides became embroiled in ugly scenes.
 
City’s frustration at what they believed were a series of injustices at the hands of referee Anthony Taylor boiled over injury time as Aguero caught Luiz high and late, which happened after the Argentine clashed with the defender at a corner earlier.

Chelsea’s Nathaniel Chalobah joined in and was lucky not to see red as a crowd scene developed on the touchline as Fernandinho was sent off for grabbing Fabregas.
 
Even then, Fernandinho had to be F@r(₮d to leave the pitch and with the whole situation threatening to go completely out of control, it was fortunate referee Taylor was able to blow the final whistle seconds later.
