More importantly from Conte's point of view, Costa will switch to Madrid and train with his new club, drawing a line under the contentious issue that the manager has been repeatedly forced to deal with.

Arrieta-Guzman is glad to know his family is doing alright but worries how they're surviving without power . Puerto Rican authorities are scrambling to evacuate as many as 70,000 people who are downstream of a failing dam. Many believe Congress shares some of the responsibility for the economic crisis, in part for the 2006 repeal of a tax exemption that helped turn Puerto Rico into a global manufacturing hub, especially for pharmaceuticals.
In an already competitive race to be the division's top scorer, Morata joined Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku on six goals from as many games. "No [injury news] - all players are available apart from Danny Drinkwater who is continuing to work to recover", said Conte.
A brilliant interception from Bakayoko allowed Morata to break free and score his second goal of the game. However, Chelsea legend Frank Lampard was one of the few impressed by what he saw of Morata during those early days. Chelsea have won eight of their last nine league away games (L1), their best run over a nine game period on the road since September 2009 when they also won eight and lost one.
Nearly notched another couple of goals in addition to his hat-trick. With Kurt Zouma , on loan from Chelsea , ineligible against his parent club and Ryan Shawcross , Geoff Cameron and Kevin Wimmer all out injured, Glen Johnson , making his first Premier League start of the season, and Erik Peters played either side of Bruno Martins Indi in Stoke's central defensive three and Chelsea capitalised on the unfamiliarity immediately.
Pedro gave the Blues a two-goal cushion at the half-time interval, before Morata killed the game off late in the second half with two more goals to complete his treble. Pedro made it 2-0 off a miscue from Potters' skipper Darren Fletcher , who chested the Spaniard through on goal. For Stoke boss Mark Hughes , the concerns are two-fold ahead of Saturday's game.

The Red Devils have made a very strong start to the new Premier League season under Jose Mourinho after having won four of their opening five Premier League games.
It was great also to change it (the song). MF Victor Moses, 7 - An industrious performance on the right flank, Moses worked the channel well making some probing runs and, pleasingly, the Nigeria global looked equally capable in defence.
Although the pairing did well for the majority of the game, to keep out the previously free-scoring United side, a Romelu Lukaku goal in the 20th minute was enough for the Mourinho's team to take all three points. "I felt some of the boys were not sharp". Great spirit and always trying, but not the same sharpness. I'd say it's just a bit of fun, that's got out of control now.
Up duly went the chant that has agitated many, and prompted the forward himself to ask the fans to "move on", pursued for good measure by a chorus of "We'll sing what we want". I don't know. Craig told me to leave and I left. The result ensured United equalled their best start to a Premier League campaign but left them second on 16 points from five games.

And the Giants' consistently answering that this is as important as any other game, and the season won't end if they lose. "They're a good defensive front", Jones said. Manning is a pocket passer so pressure up the middle really affects him. Nor does anyone else on the team. The Giants have struggled mightily so far in the first two weeks of the season.
Anthony joins MVP Russell Westbrook and newly acquired All-Star forward Paul George in a reshaped and Western Conference contender. Will the New York Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony? The Knicks have a keeper in him and he can form a dynamic frontcourt with Porzingis.

He told Kohli, "I might have a cry like you". When asked about what strategy should Australia apply in the third game, the former pacer said, "Score more runs than India ".
The Hoops managed to defeat the Rangers routinely, with 0:2. Rangers and their manager Pedro Caixinha will be keen to avenge the heavy losses sustained at the hands of their arch-rivals last season in both the league and cup.

City, who defeated Crystal Palace 5-0 , lead Manchester United - 1-0 winners at Southampton - on goal difference, with Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho claiming that the race to be crowned champions will be between six teams.

Azpilicuta was called into action three minutes later, this time his dfensive duties were required as he hacked away Mame Diouf, goal-bound shot.
But the early season table can trick us. Chelsea scored from its only two shots in the first half, Morata putting them in front after just 82 seconds before fellow Spain global Pedro netted his second goal in three games. Fabregas was as creative and fluid as ever, and Azpilicueta is proving how much of a threat he can be, as well as solid in defence. It became one of the ugliest transfer sagas in Premier League history and Conte was reluctant to offer any sort of praise for Costa ...

It might be a mistake to throw dirt on Palmer's career just yet. According to Sharpe, Dez's best year (88 receptions, 16 TDs, 1,320 receiving yards) was his last as an elite receiver.

Tate had nine catches for 138 yards but went out for the game in the third quarter with a shoulder injury he sustained at the end of a 51-yard reception.
City are sitting first due to alphabetical "advantage". So there you have it....identical records, but taking everything into consideration, we think Manchester United just shade the claim of having the better start to the season! United certainly look far better than the toothless side that stuttered home in sixth last season, although Europa League, EFL Cup and Community Shield glory was a decent return in Jose Mourinho's first campaign at the helm.

Two more of Hughes' main centre-half options, Ryan Shawcross and Geoff Cameron , remain sidelined by back and hamstring problems respectively, and another, Kevin Wimmer , is a doubt due to a hamstring problem of his own.

The striker has scored two goals in six games in north London, and manager Arsene Wenger admits he is still getting used to the Premier League's "intensity".

Walker, Mendy and Danilo have allowed City to do exactly that, with Liverpool, Feyenoord and Watford crushed by a combined score of 15-0 in their last three games.
