Chelsea travelled to face Middlesbrough on Sunday night with an amazing opportunity to go top of the table with a win. The game started slowly with Middlesbrough proving to be tough competitors.

But, as the game crossed the 40 minute-mark, Middlesbrough’s defence, who had fought valiantly up until the moment, seemed to go to sleep as Diego Costa got on the end of a corner to latch home the first match of the goal, which ultimately turned out to be the only one of the match.

The goal catapulted the Blues to the top of the table but Antonio Conte would be happier at the sixth clean sheet in a row after a torrid start to the season in terms of defending.
