Antonio Conte: This is why Diego Costa is so good for Chelsea

Antonio Conte has praised the work-rate of striker Diego Costa.

The Spaniard scored the only goal in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over West Brom this afternoon.

Costa’s stunning strike had to wait until the 76th minute but it was worth it.

Chelsea have now won their last nine Premier League games and have returned to the top of the league.

And Conte was delighted with his performance.

“It’s fantastic his commitment,” he told BT Sport.

“His work-rate in the game with the ball and without the ball.

“He was very good at winning the ball and to score that goal.

“He’s playing fantastic football and he’s very important because he’s working a lot for the team.”


  1. One great thing about Costa’s work rate this season is that he is totally committed to the game. His attitude, dedication and commitment is what has brought the best out of him. You can see his reaction even when he is badly tackled. He is very focused, all thanks to Conte. He is the beast of Stamford Bridge. I love him.
