Scoring run will end, admits Costa

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has admitted that his superb scoring start to life in the Premier League will end at some point, Sky Sports has reported.

After helping Atletico Madrid to the Spanish title and the Champions League final last season, Costa moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer, and has gone on to score seven goals in his first four games, a Premier League record.

The Spain international was signed to address Chelsea’s struggles in attack last season, as strikers Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba all failed to score on a consistent basis. Costa’s goals have now helped the Blues to gain maximum points from their first four Premier League games for the first time since 2010.

And although he has made a great start, Costa is aware that he is unlikely to maintain his scoring form throughout his first season in England. He said: “I try to play in the best manner, and hopefully things will continue like this, but there will be a moment when I cannot score. That is football.

“Every striker has their way of playing and their strengths and a different team behind them. That is very important. If you do not have the team behind you, then you can’t do things on your own. It all depends on the team.

“I am adapting very well, although it’s not just me. The key is the group that we have. It is like a family. The squad and all the people around the team are united in our cause.”
