Chelsea striker Diego Costa is relishing today's reunion with Manchester City's main man Sergio Aguero, a player he describes as the best he's ever played with.

Costa has made a fantastic start to life in Premier League, scoring seven goals in his first four games, but has to keep delivering on a consistent basis to make sure comparisons with another strike star in Aguero are justified.

Aguero briefly featured alongside Costa before leaving Atletico for Manchester City and clearly made a huge impression on the Brazilian forward, who is eager to prove he's in the same class as a proven Premier League forward at the Etihad this aftrernoon.

Quite a compliment

In an interview with the Sunday Times the Blues star waxed lyrical about Aguero, revealing: “I knew when Sergio was at Atletico, he was ‘God’. And I loved watching him.

"He is, for me, the best I saw play.“He was the best as a teammate. I learnt a lot playing alongside him.”

Jose Mourinho's decision to spend £32.5m on Costa has already been vindicated in the first month of the season, with Chelsea finally possessing a powerhouse ruthless enough to make sure there's end product in the final third.

Aguero has set a very high standard

Aguero made a similarly swift transition to life in England, scoring a whopping 23 goals in his debut Premier League campaign.

That's a mark well within Costa's sights though if niggling hamstring problems don't persist, ahead of a fixture between the defending Premier League champions and almost certainly their man rivals in the quest to retain that trophy.

Mourinho masterminded a victory away to City last season and if Costa's fit will be confident of doing the same again, but if Aguero's at the races it promises to be a tough task to say the least.
