Diego Costa has, undoubtedly, been Chelsea’s most important player so far this season – and that needs to continue against Crystal Palace.

He is the glue that holds this team together, be it with his outstanding goals or his stellar work-rate.

The Spaniard scored an unbelievable goal against West Brom last weekend, and proved in the process just how crucial he is for Conte.

There have been some calls for Michy Batshuayi to be given a chance, but why should he when Costa is playing so well? To drop the Spaniard would be an awful decision.
