Chelsea and Costa top of the charts after seeing off Villa

Oscar and Willian also scored in Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea 3-0 Aston Villa

DIEGO COSTA SCORED his eighth goal in six Premier League games as Chelsea coasted to a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

Costa has been nursing a hamstring problem, but there were no signs of an injury as he continued his outstanding start to his Chelsea career by finding the back of the net with a towering second-half header on Saturday.

Oscar opened the scoring early in the first half with his second goal in as many games and that set the tone, as Jose Mourinho’s league leaders maintained their ominous early-season form with a deserved win.

Costa, the Premier League’s leading scorer on eight, doubled their lead just before the hour-mark and Willian added the third with a tap-in, his first goal of the season, to round off another impressive display from free-scoring Chelsea, who have now scored 19 goals in their first six top-flight games.
