Fellow new arrival Cesc Fabregas also featured in Jose Mourinho’s side for the first time in Sunday's clash at the Stozice Stadium, and it was his through ball which allowed Costa to cancel out Nik Kapun’s 40th-minute opener with an emphatic finish.

The 25-year-old, who penned a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid this summer, raced onto Fabregas’ pin-point pass and fired into the roof of the net in the 55th minute.

Kurt Zouma then added a second from close range on 63 minutes, after Fernando Torres’ strike was parried into his path for a simple tap-in.

Branislav Ivanovic thought he had made it three, only for his effort to eventually be ruled out, while Torres himself missed a glaring opportunity when he diverted Nathan Ake’s left-wing cross wide from inside the six-yard box.

Petr Cech was forced into action late on to make two smart saves in quick succession, before Patrick Bamford threatened in the closing stages as Mourinho’s men claimed the win.

The Blues now face Vitesse Arnhem in their next pre-season outing, before fixtures against Werder Bremen, Ferencvaros and Real Sociedad take them into the Premier League opener against Burnley.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
