The match of the day and arguably the month as Chelsea and Everton go all out against one another. NINE GOALS, NINETY MINUTES.

Everton were fantastic but Chelsea just showed how superbly everything should be done.

Costa is THE REAL DEAL. He will be a regular in the starting line-up. Four goals in three games says a lot.

Everton lacked a defensive side to their game, and it caused havoc. Howard will clearly be upset. Coleman seems to better going forward for the Merseyside which helped up open Chelsea.

But as Mourinho does and ever so well he doubles up his flanks.

6-3 to Chelsea and the only team who can surpass them on the log now is Tottenham.

Spurs are up against Liverpool. Kick-off is at 14:30 on Sunday August 30.
