Diego Costa continued his sublime run of form against Hull City with a deftly executed curler that found its way into the bottom-right corner. Willian also got on the scoresheet courtesy of an assist from Costa.

The win against Hull ended Chelsea’s three games winless run in the Premier League. As things stand, the Blues currently sit at 7th place in the League table having amassed a total of 13 points.

Elsewhere, Swansea proved to be a tough opponent for Liverpool, but the Reds managed to grab all three points at the Liberty Stadium.

The Reds are currently 4th on the League table with 16 points from seven games, two points behind league leaders Manchester City.
