DIEGO COSTA SCORED twice as Guus Hiddink began his second spell as Chelsea interim manager with a 2-2 draw at home to Watford, with Oscar missing a late penalty that would have given the champions all three points.

Troy Deeney, with a penalty, and Odion Ighalo put Watford 2-1 ahead after Costa had given Chelsea a 32nd-minute lead, but the Spain striker equalised in the 65th minute from Willian’s pass.

Oscar had a chance to give Chelsea victory when substitute Eden Hazard was fouled by Valon Behrami, but the Brazilian slipped in John Terry-esque fashion as he took his penalty and sent the ball looping into the crowd.

Chelsea, who visit United on Monday, are two points above the relegation places in 15th place.
