Chelsea cemented their position on top of the Premier League with a 3-1 victory at title rivals Manchester City, while Alexis Sanchez's hat-trick in a 5-1 thrashing of West Ham took Arsenal into second place on Saturday. Gary Cahill's own goal from a Jesus Navas cross gifted City the lead on the stroke of half-time, but Diego Costa equalised with a clinical finish in the 60th minute. Costa capped a dominant display by setting up substitute Willian for Chelsea's second goal in the 70th minute before Eden Hazard struck to send Antonio Conte's men four points clear of City at the top.
By Elizabeth Pineau and Richard Balmforth PARIS (Reuters) - France's Left on Saturday launched a bid to re-energize supporters disenchanted by Francois Hollande's five years in power and find a candidate to unite the ranks ahead of a presidential election next year where it could face humiliation. Hollande threw the Socialist nomination of a candidate for next spring's presidential election wide open last Thursday when he announced he would not seek a second term in the Elysee. As leftist groups held a rally on Saturday intended to be the start of a fightback after months of disarray, all eyes were on Prime Minister Manuel Valls, widely tipped as favorite to become the Socialists' standard bearer despite having pro-business policies which have angered many in the party.
