EPL: Chelsea beat Bournemouth 3-1 to maintain 7-point lead

Inform Chelsea FC on Saturday shocked its title rival, Manchester City with a second half three goals come back to remain on top of the league table.

The league top goal scorer, Diego Costa, put Chelsea team back into the game with a superb finishing to cancelling out Gary Cahill’s spectacular own goal in the first half before Willian and Eden Hazard later struck to fire them to a 3-1 Premier League win.

30-year-old Gary Cahill 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.
