It was a tale of two stories this weekend as title chasing Chelsea and Manchester United experienced varying fortunes in the Premier League.

A double from new signing Diego Costa helped Chelsea secure an way win against Everton whilst Manchester United saw out a frustrating draw to league new boys Burnley.

United's marquee signing Ángel Di María failed to make an impact on his debut eventually limping off whilst Costa's double helped Chelsea to a 6-3 romp at Goodison Park.

Di Maria arrived at United from Real Madrid for a British transfer record of £59.7m in August. Chelsea on the other hand secured the signing of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas for the economical sum of £60m.

Whilst Di Maria looks to settle in at United and fellow big money signings Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Ander Herrera recover from injuries, Chelsea new boy Costa has fired himself into the league's top goalscorer's position.

Costa has now scored four goals in three appearances for Chelsea as the Blues top the league with three wins in as many games.
