The Premier League's leading goalscorer -- with none of them 17 lovelies coming from the penalty spot -- Diego Costa continued his recent scintillating form with the second-highest individual player rating this season.  Costa now owns the three highest rated individual performances this season actually:  Swansea (home; 9.8), Swansea (away; 9.5), Everton (away; 9.4).  Sorry, Swansea!

Even though Costa has yet to score in Europe, he's just about matching his scoring rate from last season (36 in 52) with 17 goals in 25 appearances.  That's our wildest summer transfer business dreams coming true.

Here's a perfect tweet and graphic to illustrate just how important our summer signing-pair have been to our successes:

Without actually taking the time to check, I'm quite certain this is the first time in the history of these here community player ratings that all three top players were rated higher than 9.  Well done!

Oscar's now just two goals shy of his total league scoring output from last season.  Chelsea have yet to lose a Premier League match in which he's scored (14 wins, 2 draws).

OTHERS:
Čech (7.6), Filipe Luis (7.7), Terry (7.8), Cahill (7.1), Ivanović (8.0), Matić (8.2), Hazard (8.3), Willian (8.2)

SUBS:
Ramires (6.9), Rémy (6.7), Schürrle (7.5)
