The game ended 0-0 at first half and made situation, the more worrying for Chelsea who missed some glaring scoring chances with Costa and Hazard as the culprits. One such golden opportunity was when Fabregas and Pedro combined to release Costa who missed it.

The bullish striker then took advantage of an inattentive Norwich defence as Fabregas sent a quick ball over them for him to cut inside a defender and curled a shot into the far corner in the 64th minute.

The goal ended Costa’s six-game scoring drought in all competitions and allowed Mourinho some breathing space after Chelsea’s previous running losses to West Ham, Liverpool and Stoke.
