Chelsea took and early two goal lead and kept the scoring going as Everton mounted a series of comebacks in an instant classic match where the Blues came out on top 3-6.

This is one of those games that if you knew how it would have played out, you would have made sure to record it. In the opening seconds, Cesc Fabregas fed Costa as Chelsea were on the break and the striker belted it home. Costa, who was an injury scare just yesterday with some reports going so far as to say he would be sidelined for several weeks, started and looked as fit as a fiddle, bagging the only brace of the match and breaking the hearts of fantasy managers who sat or dropped him because of the reports. Too many individual goals and assists to comb over in one summary, but it is safe to say that investment in their attack, which includes Branislav Ivanovic, appears a safe and lucrative move.

West Ham have officially acquired Barcelona's Alex Song on a year-long loan deal.

The midfielder has been relegated to a backup role in Barcelona but he is good enough to be a starter at West Ham. Despite seeming like a player way past his prime, he is surprisingly only 26 years old and will turn 27 later this month. He is not a great fantasy option as he is generally defensive minded and doesn't get many goals or assist. We'd avoid him for now.

The Everton defense made several mistakes, first early, then later on often, as they would concede six goals to Chelsea in a wild 3-6 final.

The officiating of today's match wasn't top notch by any means but it does not excuse today's defensive showing. Several times, Toffee defenders would try to play their marked man into an offside position and several times it cost them. They would rally after the early deficit but as the 2nd half played out, the back was breached time and again. Coleman got the worst of it from a fantasy perspective. Though he provided an assist to one of Everton's three scores, that was negated by an own goal he was credited with after deflecting an Eden Hazard shot home. Though the idea of keeping a clean sheet against Chelsea wasn't necessarily a realistic one, coughing up a half dozen on your own ground is a jarring reflection of the state of the Toffee defense.

Yaya Toure was uninspiring for the third week in a row and finished with negative two fantasy points in Manchester City's 1-0 loss to Stoke.

Toure now has negative two points for the season after putting up zeroes in his first two matches. He put up six shots but only one hit the target and he also committed six fouls including a dive that resulted in a yellow card. The midfielder wasn't getting much help from his teammates as the two starting strikers, Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic, didn't create much danger for Stoke. Edin Dzeko came in off the bench and gave City a few inspiring moments, so he may be given a start next week.

The Baggies conceded early and often at the Liberty Stadium as they fell for the first time this season.

The match was best summed up by a sequence in the second half where Ben Foster conceded an indirect free kick in the box by handling a back pass from a defender. On the ensuing free kick someone in the Baggies' wall knocked a shot on target down with his arm. The sequence didn't result in a goal but it should have and it underscored the gulf in class between the two sides on the day.

Grazianno Pelle scored to help Southampton to a 3-1 win over West Ham United.

Pelle has been good in his first three Premier League matches but has been getting extremely unlucky. He had a few shots come close to goals and one ruled out for offside earlier in this match. At the end of the day, he finished with a goal to help Southampton win in inspiring fashion. The first half was a dull but the second was exciting as the Saints found their groove and went out to attack. Dusan Tadic looks like the real deal and James Ward-Prowse has been great as well. The future is bright at St. Mary's.

Swansea's dream start to the season continued with an easy 3-0 win over West Brom that featured a Nathan Dyer brace.

Nathan Dyer scored his first just seconds after the opening whistle from a Gylfi Sigurdsson backheel. Wayne Routledge scored a crazy jumping side volley for the Swans second. Dyer completed the scoring in the second half when he beat Ben Foster to his near side. Wilfried Bony should have scored as well seeing one great chance go over the bar and another kept out of the goal by a defender's arm without it being called.

Stoke forward Mame Biram Diouf slotted home a spectacular solo goal in the second half that was enough for his side to defeat Manchester City 1-0.

The goal was spectacular but Joe Hart should have done better and will be blamed for the goal today. This is a big blow for Manchester City who have not looked as impressive in their title defense this year. A home defeat puts pressure on the team and the coach, especially when it's against a mid-table squad. Stoke City, on the other hand, now have four points from their first three matches, putting them in ninth place, right around where they belong.

Charlie Austin scored the only goal of the game as Queens Park Rangers grabbed their first points of the season.

Harry Redknapp's came into the game off the back of three straight defeats without scoring a goal, but Charlie Austin has finally given his manager something to smile about. Austin played as the main striker with Loic Remy excluded from squad prior to a move to Chelsea, and he scored from close-range following a corner on the stroke of half-time. Sunderland put the home side under plenty of pressure, but Rob Green deserves credit for a couple of remarkable saves to keep his side in the lead, and QPR are out of the relegation zone.

In an enjoyable contest where the lead changed hands, the standout performer for Newcastle United was Rolando Aarons, an 18 year old prospect who notched a goal and an assist as a substitute as the Magpies played Crystal Palace to a 3-3 draw.

Who is this kid? Replacing Yoan Gouffran midway through the 2nd half, Alan Pardew found unveiled a secret weapon in the 18 year old Jamaican midfielder. He headed in a Remy Cabella corner to level the match in the 73rd minute, then struck a glorious curling effort that clipped the far corner of the bar. Mike Willamson was there to clean up the rebound and gave Newcastle the late lead. They would however concede in stoppage time to settle for a draw. Hard to say how much playing time Aarons bought himself today, but if you want to take a chance on him, stash him as your 5th mid now as he is currently only a shade over 1m.

Burnley turned in a positive defensive display and went toe to toe with Manchester United to earn their first point of the season in a 0-0 final.

Burnley are the latest to take advantage of Manchester United's "transitional period" by keeping their mistakes at a minimum and getting their share of attacking chances. Jones came closest, when he smashed the bar by way of a free kick. He would again challenge De Gea about a half hour in, but a lack of quality from the supporting attack kept Burnley from breaking through. Jones did show enough threat to creep into the fantasy radar as he currently costs just over 5m.
