Chelsea striker Diego Costa should have been in the PFA Team of the Year ahead of Tottenham striker Harry Kane claims former Arsenal defender Martin Keown.
Keown believes Costa’s performances for Chelsea have been underestimated.
“I would select Diego Costa over Harry Kane,” Keown told the Daily Mail.
“At the moment, Costa is the better player – though Kane is not far away.
“In a one vs one, Costa has caused defenders so many problems this season.
“He was desperately unlucky to miss out on the Player of the Year shortlist.
“Romelu Lukaku is similar to Costa in that they are both powerful forwards but Costa is tidier in his work.
“Lukaku is too rough around the edges but has potential to be even better than Costa.”
