Antonio Conte: ‘This is what I think of Diego Costa’s form right now’

Diego Costa has come under fire recently for his dip in form, but the Blues boss isn’t worried.

Costa has only scored three goals in nine EPL games in 2017 and didn’t have a great game against Palace at Stamford Bridge.

A lot of speculation has surrounded the Blues striker, some saying he will leave, some saying he will stay.

This always happens when a player is having an on and off season.

Some of the fans on Twitter have hit out at Costa and have called for him to be transfered.

We call them snowflakes, just like the snowflakes calling for Wenger to be sacked every time Arsenal lose.

However, Conte isn’t phased one bit and defended his player like a good manager will do:

‘Diego is performing very well this season,’ said Conte

‘He’s a great striker and our point of reference in our offensive situations.

‘I’m not concerned about this. I believe in him.

‘He’s a really great player. I repeat – you win and you lose as a team, not as a single player. We are a team in every situation, when we win or when we lose.

‘I’m sure Diego is in good form, great form.’
