When you have a striker like Diego Costa in your team, you don’t need too many chances to score a goal, and that’s what the Spanish international did today, as his only attempt on goal got the better of Victor Valdez, who had a good evening.

Boro defender Ben Gibson said of Costa to BBC Sport: “We limited Diego Costa and dealt with him quite well. He is tough, wants to wrestle you and feel you but he finished his one chance.”

Gibson must have impressed Conte with his performance, as Chelsea currently have an eye on the 23-year-old in view to signing him during the summer.
