LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Diego Costa scored in the first and last minutes to lead Chelsea to a 6-3 win over Everton in a wild shootout Saturday, leaving the title favorites with maximum points from its opening three matches in the Premier League.

Chelsea displayed its new-found attacking sparkle with a ruthless performance at Goodison Park, taking a 2-0 lead after three minutes and then scoring three more times in a chaotic 11-minute spell in the second half.

Costa began the rout with a goal after 34 seconds and Branislav Ivanovic added a second soon two minutes later, only for Kevin Mirallas to reduce the deficit for Everton just before halftime.
