Willian reacts to Diego Costa’s display for Chelsea against Man City
Willian heaps praise on Diego Costa following his sparkling display for Chelsea against Manchester City
Willian heaped praise on Diego Costa after the striker’s brilliant performance helped to inspire Chelsea to a 3-1 comeback win over Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.
The Spanish forward has been in fine form this season and set Chelsea on their way to their comeback when he controlled Cesc Fabregas’ long pass and fired home in the second half.
Costa then turned provider when he slid Willian through on goal for Chelsea’s second, before Eden Hazard wrapped up the win with a fine finish.
The forward has been in superb form under Antonio Conte, with Costa having already scored 11 goals and made five assists in the Premier League so far this season.
And Willian was full of praise for the Brazilian-born attacker after Saturday’s victory, which kept Chelsea flying high at the top of the Premier League table.
Willian is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “Diego Costa laid on a great pass for my goal.
“Playing with him is great.”
Chelsea are top of the table after having won their last eight Premier League games in succession since a 3-0 loss to Arsenal at The Emirates.
