Diego Costa scored his 10th goal of the season as Chelsea won 1-0 at Middlesbrough to record a sixth consecutive victory and take over at the Premier League summit. Costa struck for the third straight game with halftime approaching in Sunday's game as Antonio Conte's side underlined their title credentials by posting a sixth clean sheet in a row.Costa rewarded Chelsea's dominance as the striker put the visitors – unchanged for the fifth consecutive league game – ahead four minutes before the end of the first half.Boro have forced draws against Arsenal and Pep Guardiola's City this season, but after falling behind they rarely looked like troubling Chelsea's three-man back line.Having not conceded a league goal since Sept. 24 – almost 10 hours of football – Chelsea are on their best defensive run for six years.
