    Galaxy’s Cole admits he enjoys Arsenal struggles

    LA Galaxy left back Ashley Cole left Arsenal for Chelsea more than a decade ago, but that hasn’t erased the bitter memories of the departure from his boyhood club. Cole was famously involved in a “tapping up” meeting with Chelsea without Arsenal’s permission in 2005, but signed a contract extension with the Gunners.

Costa helped to fire Atletico to a stunning LaLiga title win in 2013-14, scoring 36 goals in all competitions. It would prove to be Costa's final appearance for Atleti before moving to Chelsea, and his team-mates went down to a 4-1 extra-time defeat after Sergio Ramos equalised for Madrid deep into stoppage time.
