Chelsea fans haven’t been impressed with recent comments in the media by Chelsea striker Diego Costa and his drop in form since Chelsea rejected a huge offer from China for Costa.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has defended Diego Costa despite the backlash from Chelsea fans after the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
“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.”
