we are not saying he has to score always, we are saying he should be able to hold the ball for at least more than 2seconds and give passes to people like pedro and hazard making the runs. 

Honestly. Costa was brilliant before the China incident, now since then he has been frustrating to watch. One goal today doesn't cancel out the terrible performances he had today, Burnley, Arsenal, Liverpool, even Wolves.

I'm not asking him to score more goals, but please stop losing the ball so quickly.

By "do what Pogba does" you mean cost 4 times more and just dab all day? I'll take Kante anyday over Pogba, which anyway all of his shots just hit the post.

No No No:D:D:D. the only thing i like about Pogba is his confidence to take a shot and actually get it on target

You just knew Kante wouldn't score. Bless his tiny technique-less soul.

Three points. Made more difficult than it should've been but okay.

Personally I don't have time for negativity because I can't forget my expectactions, which matched the general consensus, at the start of the season. March towards the title continues.

I wouldn't even waste my time with these lot. We finally have a striker who scores consistently, yet people will still find something to moan about.


Two goals in six games = consistency.

Please. Even Defoe has a better consistent record in his past 6 games. The Swansea goal scorer today is even better. :/

I think we've reached the point of the season where only the results matter and not the performances. That being said though, it would be nice if we could put some really strong showings. Games like today we dominated but for large part of it, we looked rather casual, didn't create too many chances and only got back in front thanks to a Fabianski howler.

Should we be concerned that we conceded another headed goal? 2 at Spurs, 1 against Arsenal, 1 today and 1 at Liverpool (IIRC). That might catch up with us somewhere down the line, especially when we struggle to create clear opportunities.

Not sure which Costa did you watch, he tend to lose the ball a lot even in the beginning of the season. If you want a player who is technically excellent then costa is not you guy but he will give you a fighter upfront

I don't think so, I think it has been discussed multiple times, with this squad there isn't a perfect solution. We can solve our heading problem by playing maybe  Zouma but it will create another problems.

But he is even worse now. He doesn't even have his usual shooting boots on.

I don't want us to sell Costa, but we definitely do need another great CF in case Costa continues to play bad.

In 2017, on average no one can't deny that within the top 3 worst Chelsea players so far in terms of performance, Costa is one of them.

And people keep saying "Costa is having a bad patch, stop attacking the poor thing!" Does Costa care about Chelsea so much? Is he a Drogba, Lampard, Cech or Terry? The China thing really raised my suspicions and if he wants to go at the end of the season, why should I let him off so easily?

Changing player won't solve it if the marking continues to be sloppy. Just look at Llorente's goal - why the hell was Moses doing him? Why everyone bar Luiz (IIRC) didn't drop back? Another case of the defence going AWOL with the organization.

While he has been poor in some games, most of the time Hazard is making things happen so I have really nothing to criticise about him. He did well today, so that's why I didn't say anything bad about him.

In 2017? Fabregas, Pedro and Kante/Luiz. But that can change.

Edit: Actually Kante > Alonso. Changed my mind.

look guys costa is a great player in his own way. but let me ask you this, is he that good to reject a 70 80 or 90million pound bid for him? My guess is no. thereare only a few players in the team right now who we will gladly reject such an offer.(hazard courtois kante.....you can add if you have anymore people). It might be possible that the china issue affected costa but it also affected the fans as well. Now there is a different criteria for judging a player thanks to china for complicating an already complicated world of football. So i pose this question to you all and i want to see your thoughts.

Is Costa that good to reject a 70 80 or 90million pound bid for him? lets forget whether its january or summer transfer

Fabregas and Kante were a bit like lampard and Makelele today an enjoyable to watch Kante breaking up play and fabregas arriving late in the box to shoot at goal 

i would like to see him start more in games like these. (Fab)

For me technically Costa is quite poor for a WC striker especially his touch but hey he scored a volley with his weaker foot today. 

Just take the bad and the good with Costa. The only striker in the world that I want over costa for Chelsea is Suarez but that is not going to happen
