LONDON -- Eden Hazard and Diego Costa scored as Premier League leader Chelsea responded to its first loss of the season with a 2-0 victory over 10-man Hull.
Hazard scored his eighth goal of the season in the seventh minute, and Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone was dismissed on the hour after being shown a second yellow card for a reckless studs-up challenge on Filipe Luis.
Hazard then turned provider in the 68th as Costa scored his first goal in five games to seal the win. It came a week after Chelsea's uneaten start to the season was ended by Newcastle.
Chelsea remains three points ahead of Manchester City, which won 1-0 at Leicester.
