Just one day after Diego Costa completed his move to Atletico Madrid, Chelsea strikers Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi scored to help Chelsea come from behind to win Atletico Madrid 2-1 at their new Estadio Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
Many pundits criticised Chelsea for letting a striker like Costa leave Chelsea but Chelsea’s performance at Atletico Madrid proved the Blues aren’t a one-man team.
Chelsea have shown overtime that we can cope with the loss of big players. Chelsea have won titles even after big players like Didier Drogba, Claude Makelele, Michael Ballack, and Frank Lampard left Stamford Bridge and the Blues are showing yet again that we can cope with the loss of a big player like Costa.
Costa will never be forgotten by Chelsea fans for the way he terrorised Premier League defenders and helped Chelsea win titles but Morata and Batshuayi are showing us that the future won’t be bleak after the departure of Costa.
