Chelsea superstar pulls out of Belgium squad

This was just the second Premier League game Hazard has missed this season.

There was still time for Lukaku to pounce for a quickfire brace in stoppage time, taking his league goal tally for the season to a chart-topping 21.

"In the past sometimes he has been given two yellow cards".

Dawson's 12th-minute opener was cancelled out by Alexis Sanchez - who was later injured - but substitute Hal Robson-Kanu restored the hosts' lead before Dawson headed in his second goal.

"We are desperately disappointed we did not get anything out of the game".

"You must know this, but then I prefer to decide and risk to take three points".

"I don't worry", he said.

Arsenal also lost goalkeeper Petr Cech to a muscular problem and Wenger revealed talisman Sanchez's ankle was in "an absolutely awful state", raising fears of ligament damage. Cahill sent Walters tumbling and referee Taylor pointed to the spot, the Republic of Ireland global drilling home the penalty himself.

'It is a hard moment to remember this because me and all the players we celebrated a great win. "We have to look at ourselves".

He told the official Chelsea website, "It was a typical Premier League game, we're happy with the victory but it's still a long way to win the title".

And Liverpool fans were also reasonably satisfied with a point from a thrilling encounter in Manchester... Leicester City are now six points clear of the drop.

"I think he [Conte] has to take huge credit, the season before... awful season, so far off the pace. Come the end of the season that could be absolutely massive for us".

"We have important league games before the Champions League game with Atletico Madrid. We can recharge the batteries now".

Sergio Aguero's equaliser earned City a 1-1 draw at Eastlands, but Milner's record of never having lost a Premier League game in which he has scored now stands at a staggering 47 matches.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin finished off a fine Everton move after eight minutes to slot home his first top-flight goal.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has denied that his players deliberately tried to antagonise Diego Costa during today's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at the bet365 Stadium.

When they lost 2-0 at Swansea last month, it seemed nearly equally inconceivable that they might ever win away from home again.

"Diego Costa draws fouls and tries to make most of contact - when they are not fouls".
