Chelsea star Diego Costa dominated Arsenal’s defenders mentally, claims Branislav Ivanovic

first_imgChelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has claimed Diego Costa mentally dominated Arsenal’s defence during their 1-0 win over Arsenal.The Spain striker’s first-half goal was all it took for the Blues to run out winners at the Emirates, who were playing against ten men for most of the game after Per Mertesacker was sent off.German defender Mertesacker took down Costa with just 18 minutes gone and was deemed the last man, and Ivanovic believes his 27-year-old team-mate was key to Chelsea’s victory.He said: “Today Diego Costa was dominant mentally against the Arsenal defenders because every time he made a difference they started provoking him and, when they started kicking him, he was calm, which is good.“And he always wanted to provoke them. It’s part of Diego’s game, he is always playing this way and if you take that away from Diego he is not the same player.“He’s very smart on the pitch and always knows where the limit is. He provokes but he always stays calm and for us he’s very important.”last_img read more

In third place was Hugh Mc Clafferty [13] with 41pts and fourth place went to Gerard Boyce [14] on 40pts.Cat.4 winner on the day was Clive Watson, a regular to the podium this season, while best gross was collected by Johnny Deeney.Sat. 31st Open was sponsored by Eamonn Stevenson Financial Services and it took a three-way BOT to decide this competition in favour of Kevin Hannigan [10] who, with a terrific back nine of one over par gross 37 and 22pts, finished with 41pts to pip Patsy Hegarty [19] who recorded a disastrous triple-bogey at 15th.Relegated to third in that BOT was Patrick Lynch [10] who, with birdies at 2nd and 3rd, made the turn with 25pts only to let slip on the inward nine with double bogeys at 15th and 17th. Sunday 1st Sept. hosted a club confined competition and with such a large turnout as there has been on a Sunday in a long time, it was obvious that club members now have no more than a passing interest in the All- Ireland!With glorious afternoon sunshine the scores were no doubt dictated by the blustery conditions and it was a very modest 37pts returned by Gary Loughran [20] who took first place, undoubtedly helped by birdies at 8th and 18th. Relegated to runner-up on BOT was Peter Muldoon [12] who, also having birdies at 16th and 18th, lost out on top spot with a double bogey in-between at 17th.
