Former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko, has urged Blues' new signing Diego Costa to immediately hit the ground running, if he wants to become a success at the London club.

Shevchenko, who spent three forgettable years at Chelsea, has spoken out to offer the Chelsea new boy some advice and benefit of his torrid experience at Stamford Bridge.

The Ukrainian said: "The best thing for Costa is to score and score early, that will be important to him." Before adding, "The expectations from the fans and the club are very big so he needs to score and get going.”

Spaniard Diego Costa, who completed his eagerly awaited transfer to Chelsea a week ago, will be immediately tasked with firing in the goals at Stamford Bridge, a feat often failed by the Blues' recently signed forwards.

Last season was another drab season for Chelsea strikers, with Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres managing just 19 goals between them last season, the latter still yet to repay his £50 Million price tag.

Costa, who's Spain side were torn apart during this year's World Cup in Brazil, was backed to succeed at the Bridge, even though other top strikers have failed in the past, “I’m sure he will do well. I think he is a good striker and I like him.”

Also in the mix at the Bridge are youngsters Romelu Lukaku, Stipe Perica and Patrick Bamford, all of which have impressed at their respective clubs on loan.

Chelsea also splashed the cash on Costa's Spanish team mate Cesc Fabregas in the summer as a direct replacement for the departed club legend Frank Lampard.
