Cesc Fabregas was brought late in the second half to help penetrate the stubborn Baggies defence on Sunday, and the Spaniard’s pass fell in the way of Costa, who had to overpower Gareth McAuley to score a stunning goal.
Cesc Fabregas talks about how Costa turns his passes into goals.
“There is something that every pass I make he turns it into something special,” Fabregas said.
“It will probably count as an assist but it was all him. The football wasn’t the best but we knew we had to go in behind and push them lower and lower with good pressure.” Said Fabregas.
