Comments:

League position: 8th Chelsea had now won three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since April 2015. No other Premier League team had now won more points than them so far in 2016 (19). Kenedy’s goal was timed at 39 seconds; the fastest goal of the Premier League season so far. Diego Costa scored in the first minute of added time in the first half.
