2 goals + a missed empty goal. Normally, that will be a good day at the office for a striker. But when you consider his lack of a football brain and how many times he loses possession in the final 3rd, how many times he misplaces passes and how many times he completely loses control, (which had a negative impact on the team), he's still a liability. He already has 3 bookings already

Give Batshuayi 90 mins. Let's see what he can do. Next season, get rid. Afterall, he's not Suarez, Aguero, Lewandowski or even Higuain or Benzema. Bring in Morata. If you can't control yourself and behave like a normal human being, Just go back to Atletico.

Come on now. He held the ball very well the entire game and scored two goals. His movement throughout the game was excellent. Best player on the pitch and you're calling him a liability? Nonsense.

He should really stop making every game into a war scenario. It tends to make the opposition more motivated as our own squad. #morefightersontheotherside

He´s a mistery to me, on his day he can bully any defence and score goals, its great he has 4 goals in 4 games, exactly what you expect from your front man, but his attitude lets him down more often than not, already 3 yellow cards in 4 games and other team players will always try to wind him up and get him sent off,  that´s something he will face every game and he takes the bait when he shouldn´t, and he should avoid complaining a lot to the referees, because it gives them the motivation to card Costa. We all love to hate him or else he wouldn´t be Costa, but only if he could focus on his game and not picking fights he would be even more class. Cheers

The thing about Costa is that he has fantastic movement and he scores goals but his general play is below par. I think a lot of the times, we struggle to create chances because of Costa's poor first touch and lack of awareness very negatively affects our build up play. You often see Willian or Eden trying to play quick 1-2's with Costa but they never come off. A counter-attacking set-up is the one in which Costa will absolutely kill it but our possession based play does get negatively affected because of Costa's gameplay. That said, after suffering through the whole Torres saga, it's just nice to have a striker who you know will get you the goals so love you Diego.

In all honesty he is the last one to be picking on if you are looking for a scapegoat. I would be more worried of the fact that him and Hazard are the only ones to be lighting the spark in attack at this moment. What does Willian add to this team really? Apart from work rate and a successful cross or two? Cuadrado's loan back to Italy looked like a stupid move from the beginning which I did not understand. Under Conte I bet he'd have added a lot more than Willian in the attacking areas, but I guess it was his choice to go back to Juventus, rather than Conte forcing him out on loan again. Then it's Matic who adds absolutely nothing offensively and Oscar who is the biggest enigma in world football. Maybe in a team where more offensive players would get involved in the game, Diego Costa would have less pressure, but when him and Hazard are pretty much the only players expected to be carrying the team on their shoulders when it comes to attacking play, then for me there is no wonder his antics get to play a big part so often.

Can say what you want about him that had been said countless times, but in the end of the day he scored both of the goals and ultimately goals are what matters.

Best game for us in some time.

More importantly, he never took it too far after the yellow card he received which is a welcomed change.

On the flip side, if curses hurt, he would have been screaming in agony from the abuse I directed at him when decided to go down without contact instead of try to score into the empty net when Fabianski came out and Eden almost beat him to the ball.

4 goals in 4 games. Good start to the season.

But on the flip side, he already has 3 yellow cards and we're only 4 games into the season! :doh:

That's costa...

He did a very good match imo. I didn't feel it was the war some of you are mentioning. Yes, he missed a goal, but Eden's missed chance was worse, as the ball was too close to Diego in his attempt and he had to touch anyway he could while Hazard simply failed to control the ball. So if we are going to talk about missed goals, Eden was more a sitter than Diego's to me although Diego was in the box and Eden outside.

He fights, he runs, he gives his all and he still doesn't get proper service (while Cesc is rotting on the bench in favor of Matic and whatever defensive and offensive contributions Conte thinks he has better than Cesc). When he does get service, he's a threat. He misses goals here and there, but that's what strikers are about. He's got their defense booked and it was the crowd that made it look like a war because except for ONE SINGLE situation with Amat in the second half where they looked deep in the eye, touched foreheads but didn't kiss, Diego did nothing worth mentioning to rile up the opposition. I don't know what people could possibly be talking about in that sense.

At the end of the day he scored our two goals. I'll stick to that

He assisted one of the goals... the first one if I'm not wrong
