Twitter Reacts As Chelsea Ease Past Leicester Despite Costa Absence

Chelsea resumed their impressive dominance in the league following their defeat at Spurs with a convincing victory over the champions.

With Diego Costa not with the squad after a supposed row with Antonio Conte culminating in the Italian barking “Go to China!”, it wasn’t the best of news cycles for the London side. Prior to kick-off, the former Juve boss tried to dispute the reports, claiming Costa was merely nursing a back injury.

The striker’s absence was barely noticed as the Blues ran out 3-0 winners with Marcus Alonso popping up with an unexpected brace before Pedro rounded off the win with a lovely goal.

Twitter was in fine form as the game unfolded.

It was a crucial three points for the league leaders with Liverpool and Manchester City facing tough fixtures tomorrow. They quickly shut down talk of a slip after the loss at White Hart Lane and have made sure it was little more than a blot on an otherwise flawless copybook.
