2 reasons why Diego Costa simply must not return to the Chelsea team against Hull City on Saturday

Leicester City Performance

Against Leicester City, Chelsea proved that they did not need Diego Costa to win against good teams.

Now, Costa has been stellar this season. He has scored on a near-weekly basis, and his goals have been vital as Chelsea continue to impress at the top of the Premier League.

But against Leicester City, the Blues looked dominant. There was no sign of needing Diego Costa, and in truth – the Blues looked better than they have in weeks.

The fluid false-9 appears to work well with the players that Conte has, and Diego Costa shouldn’t get back into the team as a result.
