(Video) Diego Costa goal: Chelsea striker bags 11th goal of season to make De Bruyne pay for horror miss

Chelsea striker Diego Costa continued his fine start to the Premier League season with his 11th goal of the campaign after scoring against Manchester City.

The Spaniard has now scored six goals in his last eight away league games as he continues to fire Antonio Conte’s side forward.

Cesc Fabregas made a rare start for Chelsea on Saturday, and the midfield ace made the most of his opportunity as he provided an assist for Costa’s goal to make it two for the season in limited playing time.

Costa still had plenty to do though, as his control, strength and finish was world class as he left Nicolas Otamendi and Claudio Bravo stunned.

It came after Kevin De Bruyne missed a golden opportunity to put City 2-0 up, as the Belgian was unable to convert despite the goal gaping in front of him as he sent his effort crashing off the crossbar.

Pep Guardiola couldn’t contain his emotions as he was stunned that his star playmaker missed, and it took just minutes for Chelsea to take full advantage to find an equaliser and put themselves right back into the game.
