MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œWe were well in that game. I couldnโ€™t fault my own team. We gave it a right good go.

โ€œWhen you come to places like this, when you get a chance, youโ€™ve got to score.

โ€œWith Nathanโ€™s [Baker] header, Fabianโ€™s [Delph] couple of shots, [Aly] Cissokho at the back post, youโ€™ve got to score.

โ€œIf you get beat, youโ€™ve got to leave here with your confidence intact, which we certainly are.

โ€œPerformance-wise, other than trying to get a goal, I couldnโ€™t ask for any more.โ€

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 27 September 2014

*Diego Costaโ€™s outstanding start to his career at Chelsea continued as he grabbed his eighth goal to help the leaders to victory against Aston Villa.*

The Spain striker then created another as Jose Mourinhoโ€™s side secured their fifth win of the season.

Oscar was first on the scoresheet when he tapped in after Willianโ€™s shot was saved by Brad Guzan.

Costa added a second with a header before his jinking run and shot led to Willianโ€™s goal from close range.

Although the scoreline suggests it was a stroll for Chelsea, for long periods the attack had been suppressed by a disciplined Villa defence.

Nevertheless, even against a stingy backline, the Blues added another three goals to this seasonโ€™s tally to remain the leagueโ€™s leading scorers with 19 in six matches.

The win also means Mourinhoโ€™s team are one of four unbeaten sides across all the four divisions with 16 points from a possible 18.

They took a while to insert their dominance against Villa, so would have been grateful for the breakthrough in the seventh minute.

On that occasion, full-back Branislav Ivanovic slipped a pass down the left into the path of Willian, whose initial shot was saved by American Guzan. However, the ball returned to the former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder who found Oscar, with the 23-year-old adding the final touch from close range.

Up until the second goal, Villa had kept up with Chelseaโ€™s attack and restricted them for space. Costa, in particular, looked a frustrated figure in attack.

Doubts still surround whether he has fully recovered from a hamstring injury, although he showed how effective he can be with careful management.

He should have scored in the first half, when he headed Willianโ€™s brilliant delivery straight at Guzan. However, he beat the Villa keeper with a similar effort just before the hour mark.

With his tail up, Costa appeared to move with more purpose and a dazzling run in the area led to the third.

Cesc Fabregas, who had a quiet game playing in a deeper midfield position, delivered a sumptuous cross-field pass for his Spain team-mate.

The former Atletico Madrid striker confused Philippe Senderos with his footwork before firing a low shot that was saved by Guzan, but then poked in by Willian.

Costa was brought off to a standing ovation. He is already proving to be an integral figure in Chelseaโ€™s title challenge.

Villa, whose best chance came in the first half when Aly Cissokho hooked wide, face another stiff test next week - at home to Manchester City.
