Diego Costa’s goal levelled the scores before further goals from Willian and Eden Hazard ensured Chelsea defeated Manchester City 3-1 at the Etihad and send out a title warning to the rest of our title rivals.
Arsenal legend Martin Keown believes Manchester City struggled against Chelsea due to the pace and power of Diego Costa.
“City struggled with the pace and power of Diego Costa. When he chested that diagonal pass from Cesc Fabregas, Nicolas Otamendi was shrugged off,” Keown wrote for Daily Mail.
“There aren’t many who can handle Costa in a one-v-one but Otamendi should have done better. You don’t want your centre backs being swatted away.”
