Diego Costa looked to be in good spirits as he posed for a picture with some of his Chelsea team-mates after their 1-0 pre-season friendly win over Liverpool in America.

Gary Cahill’s early goal was enough for Antonio Conte’s men to claim victory over Jurgen Klopp’s side as they continue to adapt to life under their new manager.

The Blues were reduced to 10 men when midfielder Cesc Fabregas was sent off for a rash challenge on Reds new-boy Ragnar Klavan.

However, Conte’s men held on for the victory as they continued their pre-season preparations in the US.

Costa posed for a picture with Kenedy, Willian, Pedro and Fabregas after the game, posted it on his Instagram account and wrote: “Thank you very much for all my friends!!!”

Chelsea are currently getting to grips with life under Conte following his appointment as the club’s new manager earlier this year.
