Chelsea came away 2-1 winners against Olimpija Ljubljana (although it would have been 4-1 if not for some very odd refereeing), and both goals were scored by newcomers. We got our first look at Diego Costa, and he didn't disappoint, coming up with a very tasty finish for the equaliser in the second half:

Take note of who comes up with the through ball. We'll be seeing the Cesc Fabregas-Diego Costa combination fairly often next season, I imagine. Take note, too, of the way Costa makes his limited space work for him. Too often we've seen our strikers need that extra touch; Costa just shot and shot very well.

Another type of goal we'll be seeing plenty more of is the good old set piece strike. Chelsea have some extremely big players in the lineup, and Fabregas' dead-ball delivery is very good. Here's Kurt Zouma's goal, which arrived after some nice work from Fernando Torres:

The defender actually had another, far better strike ruled out in the first half (nobody's quite sure why), and Branislav Ivanovic also had a scrambled finish taken away by the referee for no apparent reason.

Nice goals, and a decent win. Welcome to Chelsea, Diego!
