Diego Costa Changes Ripped Jersey, Scores Against Liverpool (Photos)

Everything changed when Diego Costa traded in his short-sleeved Chelsea jersey for one with long sleeves.

Costa scored the game-winning goal Saturday in Chelsea’s 2-1 Premier League victory over Liverpool. Costa started the game wearing one jersey, but Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno ripped it while he was attempting an overhead kick early in the second half.

Costa changed out of the tattered blue shirt, put a fresh one on and scored the decisive goal within a few minutes.

The goal brought Costa level with Sergio Aguero for the Premier League lead. Costa is the second-fastest player to reach the double-digit mark in Premier League history.

The win moved Chelsea seven points clear of second-place Southampton in the Premier League standings.
