Highs and Lows GameWeek 6

Week after the first midweek match in the CL where only Chelsea beat minnows Maccabi Tel-aviv
4-0, while Arsenal (1-2 Dinamo Zagreb) Man City (1-2 Juventus) and Man Utd (1-2 PSV Einhoven) lost.

The serial provocateur, Diego Costa, went unpunished again and Gabriel fell into the trap as Arsenal lost 0-2 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Arsene Wenger wants the incident be investigated by the FA, retrospectively. Jose Mourinho hailed Costa as the 'man of the match'!! To put salt into wounds, he said that 'Wenger/Arsenal always moan when I beat him'. He is instilling the siege mentality into his side to win matches and will try all means to get the season going.

It started off with Costa slapping Laurent Koscielny three times in a tussle, unnoticed by the referee. Gabriel waded in and when all seemed to settle, he flicked a leg at Costa in the centre circle. Straight red! Costa became the victim.

Man City's immaculate start to season was scarred by West Ham 2-1, a second consecutive defeat for the Citizens after the CL loss. West Ham had the reputation this season of shocking the top teams like Arsenal and Liverpool at their home grounds. Those were the first league goals conceded by the Citizens this season.

Once again, for the second match running, 19-year old Anthony Martial showed his great potential by scoring two goals to break the Saints' hearts at St Mary's. For the time being, all the critics were left eating humble pies. Utd won 3-2 after another stirring performance by David de Gea in goal.
