Chelsea will be without Diego Costa for the first time this season in the league, and the big question on everyone’s lips is: can we do without the in-form Spanish international?

Some scary stats suggest that Costa is a very important player that Chelsea cannot afford to miss.

Diego Costa has been involved in 51% of Chelsea’s 35 league goals this season (13 goals and five assists). This shows how important Costa has been in our attack.

More worrisome, Chelsea have only won one of the last 11 league matches when Costa hasn’t played. The Blues have drawn 8 games and lost 2 without their talismanic striker.

Hopefully, the likes of Michy Batshuayi and Pedro Rodriguez, or whoever the coach chooses to play as the forward player can deliver some results.
