Premier League wrap: Chelsea edge

Arsenal, Manchester City shocked by West


Ham, Leicester comeback against Stoke
EPL Saturday night goals

KURT Zouma and Eden Hazard gave Chelsea a controversial 2-0 win over nine-man Arsenal
on Saturday while leaders Manchester City crashed to a shock 2-1 defeat against West Ham.
The acrimonious relationship between Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and Arsenal boss
Arsene Wenger seeped through to both teams at Stamford Bridge in a tetchy London derby
featuring even more flashpoints than usual.
And at Eastlands, Kevin de Bruynes first goal for Manchester City wasnt enough to
salvage their 100 percent start against the Hammers, who have defeated Arsenal, Liverpool
and Manuel Pellegrinis side in their first three away games this season.
City fell behind in the sixth minute when on-loan Chelsea winger Victor Moses fired home
from 20 yards for the first league goal conceded by Pellegrinis club this term.
Senegal forward Diafra Sakho netted the visitors second from close-range in the 31st minute.
Belgium midfielder De Bruyne, a 55 million ($85 million, 75 million euros) signing from
Wolfsburg last month, marked his first City start with a clinical finish in first half stoppagetime.

But a brilliant Adrian save from Nicolas Otamendis header ended the hosts winning run at
five matches and lifted West Ham into second place.
News_Rich_Media: Ritchie's wonder strike
At Stamford Bridge, Wenger was furious Mike Dean opted not to send off Diego Costa
following a clash with Laurent Koscielny and the referee further infuriated the Frenchman
when he dismissed Gabriel for kicking Costa and then showed Santi Cazorla a red card in the
second half.
I would not like to be Mike Dean tonight. Costa twice should be sent off, Wenger
said.News_Rich_Media: EPL: Watch Chelsea's Diego Costa politic the referee into sending
off Arsenal's Gabriel at the end of the first half during their English Premier League clash.
In every game Costa has aggravation and he gets away with it because of the weakness of
the referee. Mourinhos response felt designed to provoke Wenger as he said: I dont have a
view on the sending off. Man of the match for sure was Diego Costa. He brought everything
to the game.
Chelsea striker Costa was booked for shoving over Koscielny after whacking the Arsenal
defender in the face moments earlier. News_Rich_Media: EPL: Catch all the highlights from

Zouma was left unmarked to head in a Cesc Fabregas free-kick.

half substitute for Papiss Cisse, missed two chances.

a tough job, Newcastle manager Steve McClaren said.
