Diego Costa has had a good season and his 19 league goals have been important in Chelsea’s lead at the top of the table.

The Chelsea striker has scored against every Premier League team except Bournemouth, and the 28-year-old can’t wait to remedy it.

The official Chelsea website caught up with the striker and asked him a couple of questions.

When asked: Do you know Bournemouth is the only current premier league team you have yet to score against?

Costa replied: “No! Next one I will score.”

Costa was also asked: You are one away from 20 goals in the league this season, the total you reached in 2014/15. People often talk about the importance of a 20-goals-a-season striker. Does the number have significance for you?

He replied: “Twenty is a good, solid total. Any club with a striker who is going to get 20 goals regularly, they are going to be up there competing for whatever competition they are involved in. I am not one who is going to be looking at the goalscoring chart and I am not one who is looking for individual glory, it is always about scoring goals to pick up points. That is why I am looking for that consistency, that regularity of scoring, one goal every game or every other game rather than getting three or four and then having a drought.

“But with 20 I am happy. I did it in the first season at Chelsea, when we were champions, and if I get 19 or 20 this season and we turn out to be champions then great, it means something and it is for something.”
