Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi proved there is life after Diego Costa as Chelsea fought back to win 2-1 at Atletico Madrid.

Costa, whose return to Atletico was completed on Tuesday, watched on as Chelsea responded from David Luiz’s needless concession of a penalty scored by Antoine Griezmann.


Former Real Madrid striker Morata headed in Eden Hazard’s cross for his seventh goal in eight games for Chelsea before Batshuayi struck with the final kick of the game to give the Blues two wins from two Champions League Group C games.

STAR MAN

Eden Hazard. The Belgium playmaker, starting for the second time this season after his broken ankle, dazzled at times. Honourable mentions for Morata, midfield duo N’Golo Kante and Tiemoue Bakayoko and Cesar Azpilicueta.
