Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal
Premier League champions Chelsea won their second game of the season after a fiery encounter at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea star Diego Costa will be the main talking point from this game after managing to get Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista sent off and only escaping with a yellow card him self. Many feel that Costa also should’ve also been sent for an early bath when he shoved his hands in the face of Laurent Koscielny three times. Arsenal were reduced to nine men when Santi Cazorla was handed a second yellow card for a foul on ex Arsenal man Cesc Fabregas. Chelsea broke the deadlock when Kurt Zouma preferred to skipper John Terry headed in his effort on the 53 minute mark and then out of form wide man Eden Hazard sealed the game up when he saw his effort take a massive deflection to finish off the game.
