- Match Analysis
In an extensive interview with the Daily Mail’s Adam Crafton, Diego Costa gave his thoughts as the game played out.
At the 3-0 half-time score Costa remarked, “It’s going well for Chelsea, isn’t it?”
“The red card changed the game but anyway, you’ve come a long way and I have nothing to hide. Come on in.”
As the game came to a close, Costa’s father, Zeinha, entered. Zeinha shook his head at the Chelsea score, which Costa responded: “They are two players down, to be fair, Dad.”
Costa also admitted that he misses Premier League action:
“The Premier League is the top. These moments, chasing a game, with seconds to spare,” Costa said about the Premier League’s opening weekend. “It’s what we live for. You saw Arsenal against Leicester? Madness. Then Liverpool? 3-3, last minute! Rooney has scored for Everton! I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t miss those moments.”
The future of Costa is currently in limbo as the Striker has accused Chelsea of treating him like a ‘criminal’ and has threatened to remain at the family home in Brazil until he is sold.
