Diego Costa is set to join Atletico Madrid after Chelsea agreed a transfer fee for the striker with La Liga side Atletico Madrid on Thursday.

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes Chelsea won’t miss Diego Costa because Alvaro Morata is a technically better player than Costa.

“I’ve seen enough of Morata – he’s a top quality player,” Nevin told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Technically he may be a better player.  Will he have the aggression of Costa? Possibly not.

“His movement is up there in the top 10 of strikers in world football.

“If you’ve got players such as Fabregas, Hazard and Pedro creating opportunities for you, well Morata is the perfect one.

“It might sound like sour grapes, because Costa’s gone.

“No, he did a great job, but Morata is technically a better player and younger. I think Chelsea fans are probably less upset than many people think.”
