Costa: Playing with these two Chelsea stars makes things easy

Diego Costa

Diego Costa has revealed that playing with Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard at Chelsea makes his job easy.

Chelsea's Diego Costa says that he finds it easy playing alongside players with the quality of Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas.

Costa has made an immediate impression at Stamford Bridge following his transfer from Atletico Madrid this summer, but he has refused to take too much of the credit.

The Brazilian born striker has stolen the headlines after scoring seven times in his first five league matches in England, but he has credited two of his teammates for making his job easy. 

"Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas are great players," he is quoted as saying by the Independent. "It is very easy to play with guys with such a talent. We understand each other very well."

Costa is thought to be the missing piece of Chelsea's jigsaw and the man to launch their bid to win the Premier League title this season.

Last year, the Blues' lack of a clinical finisher evidently cost them, but the 25-year-old's arrival means there are no such concerns this time around.

Jose Mourinho's men are already heavy favourites to triumph come May with the bookies and very little seen so far has defied those odds. 

Chelsea are unbeaten throughout their first five fixtures and only dropped their first points of the campaign so far with a draw against Manchester City last weekend. 

In that match, it seemed as if they were heading for a huge victory, but a late strike from Frank Lampard denied them. 

Even so, Mourinho will have been happy to take a point from what looked a difficult fixture and he will now be looking to push on as the season progresses.

Chelsea take on Bolton Wanderers tomorrow night - with Costa, Fabregas and Hazard all set to be given a rest - but they will return to the field when the side are next in Premier League action against Aston Villa on Saturday.
