Chelsea vice-captain Gary Cahill has revealed the secret to Diego Costa’s goalscoring form for Chelsea this season is down to the striker channelling his aggression the right way and not getting frustrated as he used to.
“He’s exactly the same fella, he’s the same guy as when he first came into the club,” said Cahill.”He’s just channelling his aggression in the right way and not getting as frustrated as he usually would.
“I can see, because I know him, when gets frustrated like he was in the first half. But he’s being patient because when the goals aren’t coming he knows that one chance and he’ll stick it away.
“That’s something he’s added to his game this season. I was just saying to be patient and I knew he would get opportunities in the game.
“He made his own opportunity in the end. He is going to be that player and have that personality, so it’s just putting it in the right direction and at the moment he’s doing that and banging goals in.
“His goal was work-rate, effort and class all in one moment. He had not right to score that goal whatsoever.”
