England and English football Links

Burnley beat Chelsea as the defending champions had two men sent off. Crazy stuff. [ESPNFC.us]

Diego Costa gathered up every toy he has ever owned and chucked the lot of them out of the pram. Sounds like he’s a tad upset with the people at Chelsea. [Daily Mail]

World Football Links

New LAFC signing Carlos Vela might be trying to get Atlético Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann to come to LA with him. They’re apparently tight from their time together at Real Sociedad [Angels on Parade]

Neymar scored on his debut for PSG. SInce it wasn’t a hat-trick, Samu Saiz is obviously better, right? [BBC.com]
