Did Jose cave? Was his team just so bad and so lacking in attacking presence that he had no choice? Or is this whole ‘feud’ blown completely out of proportion?
Either way, Diego Costa is on the pitch for Chelsea!
And is he making a difference? We’ll probably only know for certain if he scores, but the start of the second half seems to have sparked Chelsea into life. Whether that has anything to do with Costa’s entry or not we won’t know for a while.
One thing we do know is that Costa is the ultimate competitor. He’s the reptilian predator who will get riled up and snap.
But that’s what you need in a relegation battle, right? And if Chelsea lose this one, surely they’ll have to think about the spectre of relegation. But with the Spanish international in the side, at least they have fight!
We all know what Costa is, but admit it, you’d rather have him for you than against you. Maybe that’s what Jose thought!
If there's a dictionary with all the words illustrated, in front of the "Odious" there should be just Diego Costa. https://t.co/nqug5uKETc

Costa's pantomime villain shtick doesn't work quite as well when he is playing so poorly.
