Chelsea top Manchester City in gameweek 14 after a stellar display from Fantasy Premier League standout Diego Costa.

The Blues went into the half down a goal following Gary Cahill’s first half own goal. However, Antonio Conte’s men powered back behind goals from Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard.

Sergio Aguero’s FPL performances against the top teams in the English Premier League continues to be dreadful. Aguero tallied -1 point on Saturday and was sent off in second half stoppage-time.

Meanwhile, Costa scored 12 points, but may miss gameweek 15 with injury. Four points now separate Chelsea and Manchester City.

Tottenham 5-0 Swansea

Tottenham thrashed a hapless Swansea side 5-0 as calls for Swans’ boss Bob Bradley grow louder. Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen had two goals apiece while Son Heung-Min finally got back to scoring.

Despite the win, Spurs still sit seven points from top spot. Mauricio Pochettino’s side travel to Old Trafford in gameweek 15.

Crystal Palace 3-0 Southampton

Crystal Palace unexpectedly pushed aside Southampton 3-0. The win should give Eagles’ manager Alan Pardew a little breathing room.

Palace were up 2-0 by halftime thanks to goals from Christian Benteke and James Tomkins. The Eagles added a third five minutes from time when Benteke slotted home Jason Puncheon’s pass.

Palace are now up to 13th, three points behind Southampton.

West Ham 1-5 Arsenal

Arsenal ran rampant at the London Stadium, defeating West Ham 5-1. Arsenal took a first half lead through Mesut Ozil.

After halftime, the Gunners broke out as Alexis Sanchez became the first Premier League player to break 100 points in this season’s FPL. The Chilean scored a second half hat-trick as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain added another.

West Ham did get a goal from Andy Carroll, but offered very little in way of resistance in the second period.

Bournemouth 4-3 Liverpool

Just when Liverpool look likely to make a charge for the Premier League title, the team receives a reality check. Sunday’s 4-3 loss was just that.

The Reds completely dominated Bournemouth in the opening 45 minutes, taking a two goal lead into the break courtesy of Sadio Mane and Divock Origi.

Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson pulled one back in the 56th minute from the penalty spot. However, it looked as if Liverpool would be on their way to victory after Emre Can’s sublime finish in the 64 minute.

However, Liverpool managed to give up three goals in 17 minutes to the Cherries. Ryan Fraser and Steve Cook brought the teams level before Nathan Ake scored the winner in second half stoppage-time.

Everton 1-1 Manchester United

Manchester United are now 13 points off of top team Chelsea after a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park. The draw was Jose Mourinho’s fourth in six Premier League matches.

The Red Devils were the better team for much of the match and looked likely of gaining all three points. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back in-form and the big Swede scored his eighth goal of the season in the 42nd minute. Ibrahimovic has accounted for 42% of the team’s scoring this term.

Everton were recipients of a late penalty thanks to Marouane Fellaini. The big Belgian clumsily took down Idrissa Gueye in the area. Leighton Baines put the his penalty kick away, giving the Toffees a share of the spoils.

Mourinho’s Manchester United showed little in the way of attacking fluidity and now have two points fewer than Louis van Gaal’s side at the same point last term.
