New Chelsea signings Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas have combined on their debuts to score the opening goal in their side’s second pre-season friendly of the summer.
Diego Costa joined the Blues from Atletico Madrid this summer, having won La Liga with them last season and reached the Champions League final. The powerful striker impressed last season, and changed his national allegiance ahead of this summer’s World Cup, making his way into Vincente del Bosque’s Spain squad for the tournament. Spain were eliminated in the group stages.
Fabregas, part of the same team at the World Cup, also moved to Chelsea this summer after sending a handful of seasons back with Barcelona, where he began his career. He moved to the London club despite holding great allegiance towards their cross-city rivals Arsenal. The talented midfielder is a significant addition at the club, and adds a significant level of creativity to their midfield.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will have been delighted to have seen his new pair combine in such an effective fashion so early into their career at Stamford Bridge.
