Do you really know Costa?

http://www.theguardian.com/football/quiz/2014/sep/17/football-quiz-chelsea-diego-costa-atletico-madrid
I got 5/10 btw
Talking points
------------------
1)
Half a dozen easy chances missed (2 goal line clearances), we won't miss like that every game
2)
Switched off and became too comfortable, won't happen again i'm sure
3)
DD's first game back, he's not the same player like before, give him time
4)
Better that we drew here than in the Premiership
5)
Hazard Cesc partnership, dayum
6)
No one but ourselves to blame, turned off after 1 nil and didn't kill of the game
7)
Little annoying but lets dwell on a truly poor performance, tonight wasn't a poor performance, we were just unlucky, on another night we beat them comfortably.
8)
Both Porto & Inter started their Champions League winning campaigns (in Mourinho's second season) with a draw
what I dont understand whys Mourinho benched Willian so far ?!!!!! and Filipe, and Ramires.

Willian is such a class when hes on the ball, speed, ball control, driblings, one word world-class ! far better than Schurlle no ofence !
..well i disagree, schurrle is a greater goal threat for sure. but hey, what a luxury problem to have such great players to sub in hehe. great squad this season!
+3
Apparently some people whining about all other English teams dropping points and the dive :P win against best team in the Europe 'FK Razgrad 2000'.... I cant wait for Real to destroy them and bring them back to mother earth :P
Guys chill, we'll be 1st regardless of the result today.
If we really wanted all 3 points we should have started the best available players. Drogba should have come off at HT. Ivanovic playing too far up left a hole for Schalke's goal. Hazard held the bsll a little too much at times and without our players attacking the space had no outlet but the back 4. It also looked like Hazard didn't trust Luis. There were a couple times when Luis overlapped it looked like Hazard hesitated to dump the ball off to Luis. It's early yet and Mou will make adjustments to fine tune the squad. I doubt DD will start too many more games. He's much better suited to play the last 30 minutes now than he is for carrying the team through a whole game. It could be alot worse in the end. The group is still a long way from being decided. It won't be easy though, almost every CL match we play is preceeded by a big matchup in the PL. Hopefully the decision to rest Costa pays off on Sunday. Gonna be a good one! Up the Chels!
+1
Costa was rest only because we face city in 3 days...Remy should have started and Drogba sub maybe after 70 min...But jose had other plans and it dint work well.
Anyways its not the end and we are definitely going finish on top of this group...looking forward to city game now.
Agreed Raj! We had them pinned back for large parts of the game but didn't make it count. TBH we played very similar to how we played last year, hazard bore the sole responsibility to create the offense. Without Costa up front we had very few chances to score. Or at least didn't take the shot trying to walk the ball into their net. When Costa came on we looked much stronger, just didn't have enough time left. Mourinho hesitated to make changes and it cost us 2 points. It shows how valuable Diego is and we have to keep him healthy if we want to win silverware. Credit to Schalke for keeping themselves in the game. Some of their players were playing for the first time this season.
The game was too comfortable for our own good. Looks like the players were switched off.
Filipe was very impressive I thought, he will win LB spot before the new year.
Those sexy crosses.
@Theo imo Filipe ve better class than Azpi, and beside he show more maturity, its normal, Azpi is only 24 !
only positive thing is that sporting lisbon got held 1-1 by maribor
And the other thing is - your finally off Drogba's back :D
+4
Oh well, good thing we play at home today, need to travel as much as City. And good thing the UCL group is pretty much still up for grabs. And good thing no one's injured despite key players playing today.
city got unlucky, got denied a penalty and scored on in the last minute on a deflection. should have left with a point at least
Lol. We got denied 2 penalties
+13
non of which shouldn't have been called.
and actually the tackle benatia put on silva in the box was a penalty
^It's true, You deserved the win regardless, you were the better team by some distance.

And not even at your best.
+3
@Bavaria

You better start watching another sport if you think they are penalties

A ball hiting a player hand does not mean its always a pen

+1
@snitch the ball was moving to the goal and it was denied by ur defenders elbow. I was not even mad about it not being penalty, but when someone says city deserved a penalty. I'll say the same

Thanks @SilvaMaestro this was a entertaining game from both sides and could have easly been draw. See u next time in Eithad ;)
+7
we deserved 1 as City.But I'm fine this game wasn't decided by it.
@bavaria
It wasn't a penalty. arm was close to body and there was no intention.

Even Kahn said, that you can't give penalties for something like that.
Read UEFA rules regarding hand balls in the penalty box. There must be intent to stop the shot. Defenders are given some leeway on hand balls on close proximity. No ref will give a penalty for a hand ball if the defender is 2-5 yards from the ball when the shot is made and its not clear the player outstretched his hand to stop the shot.
