Chelsea beat Manchester City 3-1 on Saturday at the Etihad to remain at the summit of the Premier League and Newcastle legend Alan Shearer believes Diego Costa was pivotal to Chelsea’s victory over Manchester City.
Diego Costa scored one and created another goal as Chelsea destroyed Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday.
“He [Costa] was pivotal to Chelsea’s success,” Shearer told Match of the Day.
“He was aggressive and too clever for [Nicolas] Otamendi and City’s defence.
“His all round centre-forward play in the second half was superb.”
