Chelsea striker Diego Costa has insisted that Colombian international Radamel Falcao will feel the love in west London.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Costa, who enjoyed a remarkable debut campaign on English soil, claims Falcao will be trusted at Stamford Bridge after his disappointing stint at rivals Manchester United last term.
Falcao, of course, managed to score just four goals for the Red Devils last term, as he failed to produce the goods week in, week out at Old Trafford.

Costa, though, believes the Chelsea faithful could see the best of the forward, as he stated: "It's good for us that he didn't have the best of seasons as that's why he's now with us.
"We know that Falcao is a hugely talented player. The only thing he needs is to feel loved and trusted, and he will get both here.
"The manager is very happy to have brought him in and we are all very excited to have him in our squad because he's a great player.
"He gets on very well with his team-mates and he will help us a lot off the field too. I suffered an injury similar to his and now I'm fine. All he needs is the consistency of regular football and to feel loved.
"If he wasn't very happy at United, whatever may have been missing there, he will get it here."
But it won't be easy
Ultimately, though, Falcao may well find himself fighting with Costa for a first-team place at Stamford Bridge. And is the Colombian really going to take the Spanish international's place in the side that often?
The struggling Colombian is clearly in need of a run of games and it's far from certain as to whether Jose Mourinho will utilise him on a regular basis.
Perhaps, though, the Blues boss has a special plan for the forward and he may yet surprise us next term.
