Former Liverpool midfielder and now Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp praised Chelsea striker Diego Costa, claiming the Spaniard is the best in his role in the Premier League:
“Could you imagine the backlash if Costa had gone in for a challenge as bad as Aguero’s on David Luiz? We all see Sergio as the saint and Costa the sinner but this was the complete opposite,” Redknappp wrote in his column in the Daily Mail.
“We are blessed with the quality of centre forwards in our league. Earlier in the season I would have said Aguero was the best of the bunch but now I have to pick Costa. He is the perfect all-round centre forward.”
