The Match of the Day host hails Diego Costa's winner in Chelsea's 1-0 victory over West Brom
Gary Lineker hailed Diego Costa’s winner after Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The Spain international has been in superb form for the west London side this season after scoring 11 times in 14 Premier League games ahead of the visit of the Baggies.
Costa took his tally to 12 for the 2016-17 campaign as the 28-year-old broke the deadlock in stunning fashion to help unlock a stubborn Baggies defence at Stamford Bridge.
The former Atletico Madrid striker nicked the ball off West Brom defender Gareth McAuley and guided an impressive finish past England goalkeeper Ben Foster to seal three points.
Former England and Tottenham Hotspur striker Lineker lavished praise on Costa following the centre-forward’s incredible goal against West Brom.
That is a quite breathtaking finish by Costa. Stunning.
