Jermaine Jenas reacts to Diego Costa’s goal in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over West Brom
The former Tottenham midfielder has his say on Diego Costa's winner in Chelsea's 1-0 victory over West Brom
Jermaine Jenas lavished praise on Diego Costa’s “top bin” winner after Chelsea were 1-0 winners against West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
The Chelsea centre-forward scored his 12th Premier League goal of the 2016-17 season after the former Atletico Madrid man broke the deadlock in the 78th minute.
Costa managed to steal the ball from West Brom defender Gareth McAuley before the Spain international fired a clinical finish past England shot stopper Ben Foster.
The 28-year-old has scored 12 times in 15 Premier League appearances this season under Chelsea manager Antonio Conte after the Italian took over the reins in the summer.
Former Tottenham midfielder Jenas lavished praise on Costa for the Chelsea striker’s impressive winner.
“What an unbelievable finish that was from Diego Costa. I said it was going to take something special to break down this West Brom defence today and they have got it from Diego Costa,” Jenas told BBC Sport.
“When he cut inside I thought he had a lot to do, but that is right in the top bin.”
Chelsea are three points clear of second-placed Arsenal after their 1-0 win against the Baggies on Sunday afternoon.
The Blues finished in tenth place in the Premier League table last season after a disappointing defence of their top-flight crown.
Chelsea will take on struggling Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday.
