Chelsea beat Manchester City as Arsenal, Spurs scored Five

match-report-img

Chelsea rallied from a goal down to beat Manchester City and stretch their winning sequence to eight Premier League matches. Gary Cahill’s own goal gave City the lead but strikes from Diego Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard earned Antonio Conte’s side victory. Chelsea fell behind when Cahill’s attempted interception looped over Thibaut Courtois but, moments after Kevin De Bruyne hit the bar, the Blues levelled. Costa took his goal tally to 11 for the season with a turn and shot on the hour and 10 minutes later Willian produced a second, celebrating by holding aloft his armband honouring the victims of the Chapecoense air disaster. Hazard’s late breakaway goal decided matters before Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho were sent off.

Alexis Sanchez got a 14-minute hat-trick as Arsenal eased past West Ham United at London Stadium. The Gunners took the lead on 24 minutes, when Sanchez raced through to square to Mesut Ozil to score. Sanchez doubled Arsenal’s lead on 72 minutes from an angle after a neat turn from Shkodran Mustafi’s pass, before firing in his second in the 80th minute from the edge of the area. West Ham hit back when Andy Carroll nodded in after Dimitri Payet’s free-kick had hit the woodwork. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored from distance to make it 4-1 before Sanchez moved joint-top of the scoring charts with 11 goals, racing through, dummying and chipping in.

Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways with a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Swansea City. After losing their unbeaten Premier League start at Chelsea in Matchweek 13, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen all scored at White Hart Lane.
