The Spain international has struggled for form this season but his second-half effort gave the Blues all three points against the Canaries.
Chelsea 1 – 0 Norwich City [Premier League] Highlights 2015/16? Exactly! Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho had Diego Costa to thank for ending the Blues’ bad run of form with a 1-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday.
The reigning Premier League champions have already suffered seven defeats so far this season, with Mourinho’s job in doubt following their string of bad performances, most recently with a defeat to Stoke City ahead of the international break.
But Costa’s goal gave the Blues all three points and relieved some of the pressure on the manager, netting after 64 minutes with a curled effort past Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy.
