Prior to Chelsea’s game against Hull City, so much of the pre-match talks focused on Diego Costa and his reported interest in the mega money from China.
However, despite all the talks surrounding the Spain international, he stepped up to the plate and scored a crucial first goal, as Chelsea went on to win 2-0.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Costa shut the mouths of his critics with that goal.
He went on to praise Costa for returning to the Chelsea line-up at the weekend to put rumours of a move away from Chelsea behind him.
He told BBC Radio 5 Live: “It’s about confidence, confidence in your ability.”
“He’s come out against Hull and hammered them.
“The fact is he’s come back and silenced the crowd.”
