Diego Costa’s goal against Wolverhampton last Saturday helped Chelsea to qualify for the Fa Cup quarter finals, but it can prove itself very useful in the Blues Premier League’s title race.
The Spanish stiker’s team-mate Asmir Begovic believes it: “Yes, it’s good for him”. – says the keeper – “He’s had a couple of tough, frustrating games. It wasn’t for the lack of trying but his previous goal had been against Hull. He is obviously a talisman, a leader, someone who leads from the front. He’s crucial to us so it’s great that he’s back firing and hopefully that will lift his confidence again and he will kick on. Do we need a confident Costa for the run-in? Yes, of course. Any successful team has to have a top goalscorer and that’s what he is. He leads by example.”
Diego Costa at the moment is third in the Premier League’s top scorers table with 15 goals but he last scored on January 22 against Hull City and now he trails Alexis Sanchez (17) and Romelu Lukaku (16).
