3 Up, 3 Down: Featuring Chelsea and Tottenham stars
Gameweek 14 of the Premier League could prove to be decisive come the end of the season.
Chelsea and Arsenal were the big winners, securing vital away wins, whereas Liverpool and Manchester City fell off the pace. The former capitulating defensively to Bournemouth, the latter just capitulating completely.
Spurs got back in the race for the top four with a big win over struggling Swansea, who fell to the bottom of the table after Sunderland secured their third win in four games over champions Leicester.
But who made this week’s 3 up 3 down?
Up: Diego Costa
Chelsea’s Diego Costa has got a fair amount of criticism on this column in the past, so it’s only right that he receives praise when he deserves it too.
The Brazilian turned Spaniard is far and away the best centre forward in the league at the moment, and his play in the second half against Manchester City was decisive on the day and could prove to be come the end of the season.
His touch and strength to hold off Nicolas Otamendi for Chelsea’s equaliser was phenomenal, and his turn and through ball for Willian’s goal was exquisite. What a player he has been this season.
