Costa earns Chelsea 11th straight win

3 years ago

Diego Costa’s goal gave Chelsea a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday as the Premier League leaders claimed a club record-equalling 11th consecutive league victory.

Costa struck in the 43rd-minute at a foggy Selhurst Park, rising at the back post to nod Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross past Wayne Hennessey for his 13th goal of the season.

But Costa and team-mate N’Golo Kante picked up bookings that will rule them out of the home game with Bournemouth on December 26.

Antonio Conte’s side opened up a nine-point lead at the top of the table, ahead of the rest of the weekend fixtures.
