Costa has a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 84%, leading all Premier League observers to hail him.

Ulloa, who joined Leicester from Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer, has also been impressed with Costa.

‘Diego Costa’, the 28-year-old Argentine told the FourFourTwo magazine when asked which Premier League striker has surprised him the most.

‘It’s amazing how quickly he has adapted. He’s strong, quick, dynamic. He can play on the left, on the right… and is a killer’.

Ulloa himself has been in impressive form for Leicester in the Premier League so far this campaign.

The former Almeria star has scored five goals and created eight chances in 10 league appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 74% and shot accuracy of 64%.
