Atletico Madrid 1-2 Chelsea RECAP as Michy Batshuayi earns three points late on after Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann goals

Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi proved there is life after Diego Costa as Chelsea fought back to win 2-1 at Atletico Madrid.

Costa, whose return to Atletico was completed on Tuesday, watched on as Chelsea responded from David Luiz's needless concession of a penalty scored by Antoine Griezmann.

Former Real Madrid striker Morata headed in Eden Hazard's cross for his seventh goal in eight games for Chelsea before Batshuayi struck with the final kick of the game to give the Blues two wins from two Champions League Group C games.

The dramatic finish gave the Blues two wins from two Champions League Group C games.

It was no less than Antonio Conte's visitors deserved after a strong showing, with Tiemoue Bakayoko, N'Golo Kante, Morata and Hazard particularly impressive.

Well, well, well... The game was winding down and it looked as if the two sides were content to leave with a point apiece, but Chelsea clearly had other ideas. With the final attack of the evening, they were able to find the back of the net one last time to propel themselves right to top of Group C, putting them in pole position ahead of their clash against Roma next time out.

Luiz is bundled over by Koke, resulting in one final free-kick for Chelsea. This should be the last chance of the game, but will they be able to make it count?

GOAL! Yes, they can! Chelsea win with the final kick of the game! The free-kick is sent short and worked over to Alonso on the right-hand side of the hosts' box. The Spaniard then fizzes a great pass across the face of goal and towards Batshuayi, who easily manages to beat Oblak with a first-time strike from close range. Antonio Conte is going absolutely wild on the sideline, and it's no wonder why!

That was really well done by Alonso, who played a clever one-two with Willian before putting the ball on a plate for Batshuayi. Atletico looked as if they were going to leave with a point, but they've been torn apart at the final possible moment!

Gimenez manages to carve out a pocket of space for himself just outside of the Chelsea penalty area and does well to get a shot away, but it's slightly overhit by the defender and sails a few yards over the top of the crossbar.

The fourth official has indicated that there will be three minutes of added time.

Great defending by Cahill! Griezmann looks set to penentrate the Chelsea penalty area after doing well to pick up the ball just outside of the box, but Cahill is there to dispossess the Frenchman with a well-timed tackle at the vital moment.
