Costa’s overhead kick rescues point for Chelsea
Written by Morenike Adebayo on September 12, 2016
Chelsea dropped their first points of the Premier League season as Diego Costa struck twice to help Chelsea secure a two-two draw at Swansea City and ensure the Blues maintain their unbeaten record in the Premier League this season.
Costa, who might have been sent off, capitalized on poor defending to fire the dominant visitors in front. But Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty and Leroy Fer’s bundled goal two minutes later turned the game on its head.
Costa scored an acrobatic late second to salvage a point for Antonio Conte’s team, who stay second in the table. Italian, Conte was aiming to become the fourth Chelsea manager to win his first four Premier League games in charge, joining Jose Mourinho, Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti.
