MICHAEL OWEN believes Diego Costa will inspire Chelsea to their ninth consecutive win on Sunday.
The Premier League leaders host West Brom looking to continue their fine form.
Costa has been prolific in front of goal during the Blues’ hot streak, scoring six times.
And ex-Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen believes Costa is in for a good afternoon against the Baggies.
Owen told BetVictor: “After an indifferent 2015/16 season Diego Costa has been quite magnificent leading the Chelsea line so far this term, and no surprise to see he is near the head of the market for the PFA Player of the Year given the start to the campaign he has made.
“It is hard to see anything other than a home win for Chelsea with the Brazilian born Spanish international likely to play a prominent role again.”
Costa has been passed fit to play against West Brom after suffering a muscle injury against Manchester City last weekend.
