Chelsea star Diego Costa stressed the importance of winning a crucial game like the one of tomorrow night against Manchester City, that wouldn’t mean just three fundamental points in the title race, but it could mean also to kick a direct rival out of the chase for the title:
“After a loss at home and with a rival closing the gap the importance of the game only grows,” the Spanish striker claimed after the defeat against Crystal Palace.
“We know this game against Manchester City will be a six-point affair since if we win the game they will be out of the title race while we keep the advantage. It also depends on the match between Tottenham and Swansea. In any case, we will do our best.
“We hope that the next game the ball will go in, and that we do a better job at handling these counter-attacking plays so we do not suffer from early goals again, and thus avoid what happened against Palace.”
