(Video) Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal: Diego Costa Bags Yet Another Goal and Cesc Fabregas Is Creator In Chief

Jose Mourinho’s side opened a five point lead at the top of the Premier League with this comfortable win over north London opposition.

Chelsea vs Arsenal was as typically feisty as an encounter as ever and early on Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho clashed on the sidelines after Gary Cahill had clattered into Alexis Sanchez.

Chelsea took the lead after 27 minutes after Eden Hazard was brought down by Laurent Koscielny, a challenge that could perhaps have been worthy of a red card, the Frenchman getting just a caution.

The Belgian attacker stepped up to fire the spot-kick home with typical confidence.

Twelve minutes from time former Arsenal man Cesc Fabregas provided a sweet assist for Diego Costa, the pair combining for the umpteenth time this season, the Brazilian born Spanish international calmly lifting the ball over advancing keeper Wojciech Szczesny to net his ninth Premier League goal of the season.

Late on Danny Welbeck was lucky to not receive his matching orders for a particularly reckless challenge on Cesc Fabregas.
