Premier League leaders Chelsea further stamped their authority on the title race courtesy of a 3-1 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Antonio Conte’s Blues saw second place Tottenham close the gap to four points after thumping Watford 4-0 earlier in the day, but an Adam Smith own goal and an Eden Hazard strike in the first half set them on their way to a 24th win of the campaign.

And although the Cherries hit back through Josh King’s 11th goal of the season, Marcos Alonso’s wonderful free-kick midway through the second period secured the points for the West London outfit.

On what was a generally positive day for Chelsea, the performance of one player didn’t go down too well with the Blues faithful, that of striker Diego Costa.

The Spanish international has netted just three Premier League goals in 2017, and has now gone five matches without a goal in all competitions.

And several Chelsea supporters are getting increasingly frustrated with the 28-year-old, lamenting another ‘poor’ performance at the Vitality Stadium yesterday…
