Chelsea fans won’t particularly be impressed with Real Madrid, as the Spanish giants have signed two key Chelsea players in the past year.
First, top goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois left for Real Madrid last summer much to the fury of Chelsea fans, and just this summer fan favourite Eden Hazard also left the club.
One former Blue who’s on the other side of Madrid, is Diego Costa, and he’s a player that’s still very much loved at Stamford Bridge. Although hated by other Premier League fans during his time at Chelsea, Blues fans loved him massively.
Costa was prolific in front of goal for Chelsea, and he also played on the edge, although he never got a red while playing for the Blues. But he was suspended a couple of times.
Costa started the clash alongside former Chelsea star Alvaro Morata, and Chelsea fans saw their former lion raging against the Los Blancos. He scored four goals against Zinedine Zidane’s side before being sent off for an angry altercation with Dani Carvajal.
Chelsea are yet to find a worthy replacement for Costa, and Blues fans took to social media to express their admiration for Costa after the game.
