It was an interesting game today as Chelsea continued their seemingly inexorable march to the title with Diego Costa scoring his 11th league goal of the season in a 2-0 win over 10-man West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge today.
West Brom’s defence was in a dreadful state, and their day continued to go from bad to worse when Claudio Jacob was sent off for a two-footed tackle on Costa just before the half-hour mark.
Chelsea are seven points clear of second-placed Southampton after 12 games of the season. They have only spilled points in draws at Manchester City and Manchester United.
