Chelsea fans react on Twitter to man-of-the-match performance from Costa v Man City

By Alex Stevens

Diego Costa delivered a man-of-the-match performance, with a goal and an assist in the second half, as Chelsea beat Manchester City 3-1, and fans have taken to Twitter to proclaim him as the best in the Premier League.

Costa has now scored 11 goals in 14 Premier League games, one more than Sergio Aguero, who got himself sent off in the 96th minute after a horror tackle on David Luiz.

It means Chelsea’s great start to the season continues under the excitable Antonio Conte, and Costa has been at the heart of the Blues resurgence.

They now sit four points clear at the top of the table and look like the team to beat this season. Liverpool are in second and play tomorrow lunchtime away at Bournemouth.

Diego Costa limped off towards the end of the match and fans will be hoping it’s nothing serious as he looks to fire Chelsea towards yet another Premier League title.
