Cape Town - Chelsea overcome a stubborn Leicester City side to stay top of the English Premiership table after two games played.
As it happened: Chelsea v Leicester City
John Terry spoke of the impact made by Diego Costa.
"Diego scored goals in pre-season and he’s been unbelievable in training," said the skipper on the club's website.
"He’s one of those that you want to be on your side when the bibs are handed out.
"I knew he was a very good player but I didn’t realise how good until I played against him in the Champions League. He’s a real handful and he can play. He can get it, he can turn, he’s quick, he’s powerful and more importantly he can score goals. He’s in the right place at the right time." added Terry.
"He’s been great around the dressing room without speaking any English at all. He’s funny because he gets on with everyone and people translate and help out. He’s really settled in off the pitch and the goals obviously help too."
Andy King, speaking to lcfc.com, felt the visitors showed more than just the plucky spirit of underdogs.
“For the first hour we were brilliant, we played really well,” he said.
“But you have to take your chances at this level."
“I thought the all-round performance from our whole team was excellent, we really defended as a unit and looked dangerous going forward.
“We were the dominant side in the first half and should probably have gone in in front, but they’re a good side and they’re always likely to score on their own patch.
“You saw the chances we created today – if we play like that in the majority of our games this season, we’ll be absolutely fine.” added the midfielder.
