Antonio Conte’s side have gone four points clear at the top of the Premier League after an impressive comeback win at the Etihad Stadium despite their defender’s blunder on the …

Diego Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard struck for Chelsea to fire them to a 3-1 Premier League win at Manchester City on Saturday, cancelling out Gary Cahill’s spectacular own goal in the first half.

The 30-year-old had unwittingly opened the scoring for Pep Guardiola’s men right on the stroke of half-time, acrobatically vollying Jesus Navas’s cross into his own net.

Undettered, Chelsea went searching for a result after the break and Costa pulled them level after a brilliant pass from Cesc Fabregas, with the striker doing well to shrug off Nicolas Otamendi and net.

The Blues then struck twice on the counter-attack as Costa turned provider for Willian who finished instinctively with a low shot, before Hazard sealed three points that could prove in the title race late on.
