Chelsea 2-0 West Brom: Another week, another TWO records for Cesc Fabregas
Jose Mourinho's side continued their superb start to the season with a comfortable win over Alan Irvine's West Brom.
The Blues had the points wrapped up early, with Diego Costa and Eden Hazard scoring in the first 25 minutes, before Baggies midfielder Claudio Yacob was sent off after 28 minutes for a two-footed lunge on Costa.
The second half was something of a procession, but Chelsea's first half showing will have left the West Londoners' title rivals quaking in their boots.
Cesc Fabregas was once again among the star turns. The Spaniard attempting a dizzying 153 passes over 90 minutes - the most of any player in a single Premier League match this season. Next best at the Bridge on the afternoon was Nemanja Matic, with 96.
