Twitter was particularly awash with praise for Costa as he hit the ground running with his equaliser.

@Jordan_Armo described him as "a classy little operator", while @timbrennan85 said his performance was "hopefully a sign of things to come".

Gary Devonport described the match as a "decent run out", writing: "Costa class. Shack class. Clarke playing with confidence. Klich steady away. Kalvin steady away. Davis steady. Bogusz grew into it."

@Dom_Fetch89 said: "Costa looked absolute quality tonight and it's easy to see why Bielsa has brought Ben White in. Looks very assured at the back and not afraid to run with the ball. Very impressive".

Luke Barton said: "That Bogusz finish was filthy. I predict a big season for this lad."
