Having secured a £32m move to Chelsea over the summer, Diego Costa has hit the ground running.

Beginning his debut season in England with the striking of a blistering vein of form, the Brazilian-born Spaniard has struck on nine occasions in nine games in all competitions this term, with an unbelievable nine in seven in the league. Hundreds of players have struggled to adapt to Premier League football, but Costa has done so instantly. And here's why.

Firstly, Diego Costa loiters - and patiently so. When he isn't seeing the ball, he doesn't go in search of it, he stays up top and awaits it. There are always going to be chances, and if you're patient they will fall at your feet. Many players become frustrated when they aren't getting on the ball and subsequently go hunting for it, dragging themselves out of the final third and away from the danger zones. Diego Costa does not have this issue.

Additionally, Costa already has the physique required for Premier League success. In the past, players like Cristiano Ronaldo had to bulk up prior to obtaining success in England, but Costa's pace, strength and power mean that he is already fully equipped to do battle with the notoriously tough Premier League centre-halves. Costa has proved his physical presence, conquering the likes of Koscielny, Mertesacker and Jagielka over the course if his debut seven appearances in English football.


Furthermore, Costa has the best service in the land. With fellow summer acquisition Cesc Fàbregas serving as the creative hub of the team, not to mention Eden Hazard, Schürlle, Willian or Oscar, there is no lack of world class support supplying him. This ensures that Costa will be supplied with opportunities every game, meaning that whether he plays poorly or brilliantly he will still maintain a very respectable goal record.

In addition to his outstanding natural ability, when combined, these factors build up to the success that Diego Costa is currently experiencing. Scoring goals like a man possessed when he's playing poorly and when he's putting in inspired displays, no one can stop the ex-Atlético Madrid man. Don't be surprised if you observe him holding aloft the Premier League Golden Boot at this term's finale - and quite possibl the Premier League trophy too.
