Batshuayi trolls Costa after scoring Chelsea winner

Champions League By: Linus Onyeze | 28/09/2017

Michy Batshuayi took a cheeky dig at Diego Costa after coming off the bech to score the winner for Chelsea against Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi took a sly dig at his former teammate Diego Costa after he scored the winner with the last kick as the Blues beat Atletico Madrid 2-1 at the Wanda Metropolitano in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Bastshuayi took pictures with Costa, who has now returned to Atletico from Chelsea, before taking the cheeky dig at the Spain striker, who looked disappointed after his new side lost to his old side.

Costa completed his £59million move from Chelsea to Madrid this week and watched from the stands as his new club lost to his former club courtesy of Batshuayi's last-minute winner.

The pair then posed for a picture alongside another former Chelsea striker - and current Atletico frontman - Fernando Torres.

Batshuayi then posted on Instagram: "Great honour to meet one of the great strikers I used to watch when I was younger... and no I'm not talking about Diego."

Batshuayi would have hoped to have established himself as Chelsea's main striker in Costa's absence but Alvaro Morata has shone since joining from Real Madrid.

The Spaniard levelled the score on Wednesday after Antoine Griezmann had opened the scoring from the spot.
