The 28-year old forward scored five goals in the first five matches of the season, however has gradually faded away since then. He has lost his scoring boots as the Argentinian gave zero contributions in the last seven games played.

Two matches started, two goals, if he gets consistent supply from the team, without a doubt he can pick up where he left off last season.

He had numerous chances to add on his goal tally but The Baggies goalkeeper made sure no further embarrassment. The Spaniard has the pugnacity to break into any defense using his strong physical presence as well as towering height. Since the beginning of the season, Costa has scored various goals from different angles, demonstrating his clinical skills in front of goal. Upcoming matches for the Blues seems to be fairly comfortable hence the 26-year old have great chance to shove Sergio Aguero away from the top scorer chart. Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the Spaniard will be available for weekend clash at The Stadium of Light, despite picking up a minor knock in the midweek Champions League match.
