The former Crystal Palace forward made the comments following Costa’s performance for Leeds in their 1-0 win against Bristol City at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.
Morrison said on Sky Sports Football (5:17pm, February 15, 2020): “Costa had two great chances today. He had a few chances in the week. He needs to start contributing to this team.”
Costa, signed on loan from Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer of 2019, should have done better with his finishing against City, but he did try hard and looked creative.
According to WhoScored, the 26-year-old winger took four shots of which three were on target, had a pass accuracy of 67.4%, took 73 touches, attempted five dibbles, made three tackles and one clearance, and put in three crosses.
Against Brentford on Tuesday evening, Costa took two shots of which one was on target, played one key pass, had a pass accuracy of 68.6%, took 61 touches, attempted two dribbles, made two tackles and one clearance, and put in three crosses, according to WhoScored.
Leeds are second in the Championship table at the moment with 59 points from 33 matches, four points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion.
