Arsenal first scored in the 20th minute when Alexandre Lacazette headed in the rebound from another of Sanchez's free-kicks, and then in the 67th when the Frenchman struck from the ...

Now it will be interesting to see how well Gasly can compete against Sainz and which driver line-up Toro Rosso will go with in 2018.

The 24-year-old was sensational against Stoke City on Saturday, taking a ideal touch in the box from a long pass from Cesar Azpilicueta before lofting the ball over Jack Butland to make it 1-0 to the visitors. They know the person I am. Conte did not want to get drawn into how bad his relationship with Costa, who was AWOL for the start of the season, had become and insisted the Chelsea squad were never distracted by the saga.
With Chelsea wanting rid of him and Atleti keen to re-sign their former star, it seemed inevitable Costa would return to Madrid during the recent transfer window. He helped Atletico win the Spanish league and reach the Champions League final in 2014.
