Chelsea have a very poor record when playing without Diego Costa. Chelsea had won just once in eleven games when playing with Costa before the 3-0 thrashing of Bournemouth.
Pundit Trevor Sinclair claims Chelsea have sent a statement of intent after winning Bournemouth convincingly without Diego Costa.
“They’ve reacted well (to not having Costa),” Sinclair told BBC’s Final Score.
“They’ve only won one game in eleven previously without Costa.
“And this is them now sorting themselves out and saying they can do it without him.”
