Chelsea made just one change to the side that put three goals past Leicester City last weekend with transfer rumour victim Diego Costa returning to starting eleven in place of Willian on recovering from his reported back issues.

It was a typical Sunday afternoon for Arsenal fans at the Emirates, put through the wringer emotionally by the side they love, and rescued right at the death by Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez, who despite missing 3 of his last 4 penalties showed the calmness and petulance that one has come to expect with greatness as he stroked home the winner for the home team in the 98th minute of the game.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is understood to be investing a good amount of his time in shortlisting potential offensive targets for his team.

Tottenham Hotspur escaped the Etihad Stadium with a point despite two goalkeeping errors from skipper Hugo Lloris, as they battled back from 2-0 down to grab a share of the spoils against Manchester City.

Spurs were lucky to still be in the game at half time after having been comprehensively outplayed by a Manchester City side that appeared to have forgotten the route to goal.
