Diego Costa has admitted that Chelsea aren't playing well but claims his teammates are good enough to get out of their current situation, reports BT Sport. 

Despite making changes to his starting XI, Jose Mourinho's side fell to their fifth defeat in all competitions at the hands of Porto last night.

The likes of Loic Remy, Oscar and Radamel Falcao were left out of the squad for the Champions League showdown, while the trio of John Terry, Nemanja Matic and Eden Hazard had to settle for the bench.

Costa, who is currently serving a three-game domestic ban, started in Portugal, but failed to make an impact. The Spain international has, however, backed his teammates to turn things around in west London.

"We are not playing well, this is not a good moment, but we have players to get out of this easily."

Won't be easy 

Chelsea eased to the Premier League title last term, but they appear to be a shadow of their former selves right now. Mourinho's side were a model of consistency in 2014/15, but there's a lack of identity within the ranks.

The top players at Stamford Bridge are failing their manager and it's bizarre. How has this happened? Mourinho has to find a way out of this mess or he may eventually succumb to the axe. 

The form of Diego Costa could prove key in their pursuit of success. He will be missing for this weekend's clash with Southampton, but he must prove his credentials once again in the near future. The former Atletico man has the ability to help steer the Blues in the right direction. Someone has to become the club's talisman sooner rather than later. 

Who should start against Southampton this weekend? Have your say below!
