Atlético Madrid have continued their fine form, leading to their recent game against Elche, as Diego Simeone’s side won the game 3-1.

Suarez scored a brace in that game and Costa who was on the bench for the game, came off to score a goal to make it 3-1.

Suarez who has been criticised at times this season, resumed his goalscoring form against Elche with a brace.

Costa was happy to see Suarez score and jokingly called him a bastard for scoring when he came back from injury.

“He wasn’t scoring, the b*stard… now I’m back and he scores twice,” Costa said, before adding that he was very happy for the Uruguayan.


Meanwhile, Chelsea will face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16, when the Champions League resumes in February.

Reacting to the draw to face Atletico Madrid, Lampard said: “Most people will say it’s the toughest draw we could have had when you go off current form, how they are doing in La Liga, European experience and the quality of the team and player,” Lampard said.

“On the other hand all draws are difficult in the Champions League. We have to have belief in ourselves when that game comes around. You have to beat these teams if you’re going to win the Champions League. It is what it is.

“Any draw is tough but if you look they are top of La Liga and when you look at the batch of teams. I watched them knock Liverpool out last year. They are obviously a great team with experience and quality in the squad. Most people would say that they were one of the toughest we could have drawn on paper. We have to turn up and do our job.”

With Diego Costa and Luis Suarez firing for Atletico Madrid, Chelsea will have to at their best against the Spanish side.
