Chelsea FC of England are now two points clear at the top of Manchester City at the top of the English Premier League table. The Blues who were unimpressive in the first half but came out inspired in the second half won Newcastle 2-0 through a late strike from Oscar in the first half and another from the premier league top scorer, Diego Costa in the second half.
Kurt Zouma had his full premier league debut in the game and was more than comfortable at the heart of defence where he paired with skipper, John Terry. Petr Cech who also replaced Thibaut Courtois in the starting line-up made some quality saves which saved Chelsea from going behind in the first half.
At Goodison Park, Manchester City managed a 1-1 draw against home side, Everton. The Mancunian Blues had gone ahead in the 74th minute through a fine header by Fernandinho but their joy was not to last as Steven Naismith equalized just four minutes later. The results leave Manchester City two points behind league leaders Chelsea.
