Costa sealed a return to Atletico from Chelsea back in September for £57million

Chelsea and Atletico Madrid played out an entertaining 1-1 draw in their final game in Group C at Stamford Bridge.

The 26-year-old suffered a hamstring injury against Crystal Palace in October and spent more than a month on the sidelines.

"But at the same time, we conceded a goal and we have to improve because after a corner there were a lot of mistakes".

This season, with Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater all hampered by injuries, he has already started 18 games in all competitions. This is not an excuse, just the reality. We just tried to do what we could do in the game.

Spain striker Alvaro Morata fired at Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak when he looked sure to score and Brazil winger Willian wasted an even better chance when he blazed an effort high and wide in the 82nd minute. "Now we are going to try to win [at Chelsea] as we have a team capable of doing that". The Spaniard hardly put a foot wrong and was comfortable with or without the ball at his feet. "Our (next) opponent won't be happy to play against us".

"Bakayoko has to work hard in training and also when he plays".

Luiz has been marginalised by Conte after he was involved in a bust-up with the Chelsea manager after the 3-0 defeat to Roma at the end of October. "After a performance like this, the coach must be [happy]". "I hope he can continue this way". "It was a tough group". You can go for many more years. After the draw we'll see what happens. I'm enjoying my football. "It's difficult to explain". But we are Chelsea and we have to be ready for everything.

Conte agreed with his midfielder's assessment. Antonio Conte is still expected to name a strong line-up as he looks to oust Diego Simeone's side, who have reached the finals in two of the last four seasons.

Torres flicked on a corner and Niguez atoned for his miss by scoring from eight yards out.

"We must be pleased for our group", he said.
