Wednesday night's #Premier League games matched together the top teams in the league and yet again it was #Chelsea who stole the show with the strongest performance at Stamford Bridge. Facing Tottenham is no easy task in the Premier League, especially after they come off the back of a morale boosting win over Everton. Although Chelsea have looked so good this season, it was Tottenham who should've taken the lead when Harry Kane's header crashed off of the bar, but other than that, the Blues controlled the game. Eden Hazard, whose strongest performances for the Blues seem to come at Stamford Bridge opened the scoring. Didier Drogba found a pass inside the box for the Belgian, who hammered low beyond Hugo Lloris to give the home side a lead inside twenty minutes. The worst thing for a side to do when going a goal down is to concede again minutes later. This time Oscar's pass found Chelsea legend Didier Drogba and he did what he has done best for years, finding the back of the net to double his sides advantage. Brazilian attacking midfielder Willian failed to add a third on the stroke of half-time, when it looked more likely he would score. In the second half, Chelsea controlled the game and brought Didier Drogba off, replacing him with Loic Remy. That change paid dividends with a quarter of an hour remaining, the French striker latching onto Cesar Azpilicueta's through ball to slot past Hugo Lloris and make it three. A comfortable win for Chelsea against a contender team for European places in the league, further showing their strength as title challengers. 


#Manchester City kept up the pressure on Mourinho's men as they did what Chelsea failed to do on Saturday, destroying Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, for the first time in five years. Sunderland surprisingly took the lead on the twenty minute mark, Connor Wickham finding space inside the box and smashing low past Joe Hart. That goal seemed to spark City into life and particularly their Argentine front man Sergio Aguero. Aguero has been in magnificent form this season, saving Manchester City's season on many occasions already. It was Stevan Jovetic who provided the chance for Aguero and he fired the ball high into the top corner to level the game. Sunderland's lead lasted barely two minutes which will undoubtedly disappoint manager Gus Poyet. Five minutes before half-time, Aguero turned provider, this time playing through Montenegrin striker Jovetic, whose composed finish fired his side into the lead. In the second half, the away side continued to move up through the gears as they pulled away from the Wearside club. Pablo Zabaleta was surprisingly the third man to get on the score sheet, firing his shot first time into the back of the net, with Samir Nasri providing the pass for the full-back. That goal pretty much wrapped the game up for Manuel Pellegrini's men, but Sergio Aguero had to get the last say in another Manchester City fixture this season, his first time effort finding the back of the net via an assist from the Sunderland post. 


Arsenal and Southampton faced each other in what could be another fixture containing teams contending for the top four come May. With two teams who are renowned for the excellent football they play and considering the start to the season both sides have had, the game failed to live it to its pre-match expectation. Clear cut chances were few and far between in the first half, Danny Welbeck spurning the first of those inside ten minutes, before his deflected header was excellently saved at the end of the half, Graziano Pelle had also blazed a shot awfully wide for Southampton, who looked less potent in their attacking play. In the second half, after Southampton had started brightly with Pelle's blocked effort, the home side began to take control. As time went on in the game they created more and more opportunities, Fraser Forster being called upon on many occasion to keep the Saints in the game. Southampton's cause was definitely not helped by the fact that Toby Alderweireld had to limp off injured with a hamstring injury towards the end. That left Southampton, who had used all of their substitutes, down to ten men for the final minutes. The pressure on the ten men eventually paid off. Olivier Giroud had a shot blocked by Jose Fonte, arguably with use of his hand, but Aaron Ramsey kept the ball alive and found an unmarked Alexis Sanchez, who was never going to pass up the opportunity from barely eight yards out. Another win for Arsenal, another Sanchez goal, like Aguero for City, the Chilean forward may be a key part of this Arsenal top four/title challenge. 


In the final game of the night, Everton were disappointingly held to a 1-1 draw with Hull at Goodison Park. The home side, looking to bounce back from their Sunday afternoon defeat the Tottenham couldnt have asked for a more out of form opponent, but failed to make that count. Romelu Lukaku's first half goal was cancelled out by substitute Sone Aluko in the second half, as the Blues continue to fail to hit the heights they reached last season. On Tuesday night, Manchester United made it four wins in a row with a hard fought 2-1 win over Stoke at Old Trafford. Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata were on target for the Red Devils, with their goals either side of a Steven N'Zonzi equalizer. Newcastle dropped more points with only a draw at Burnley (George Boyd and Papiss Cisse on target for their respective sides). Liverpool made it back-to-back wins for only the second time this season in the Premier League, seeing off ten men Leicester 3-1. The Reds had trailed to an unlucky own goal from Simon Mignolet, but goals from Adam Lallana, Steven Gerrard and Jordan Henderson made the scoreline look more comfortable than the game actually was. Aston Villa finally picked up a win thanks to Christian Benteke, Paul Lambert's side 1-0 winners away to Crystal Palace, whilst both Swansea and West Ham also took home three points in their fixtures. Swansea, whose goals came from Ki and Wayne Routledge were comfortable 2-0 winners over QPR and West Ham were 2-1 away day winners at West Brom, Kevin Nolan and James Tomkins on target for the Hammers. 


So, the Premier League is now well into the season and unfortunately for the chasing teams, Jose Mourinho's Chelsea do not look like letting up one little bit.
