Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao believes his striker-partner Diego Costa is 'crazy' and has insisted that they will compliment each other throughout the course of the season.
As reported by the club's official website, the Colombian hit-man, who came off the bench to make his Premier League debut for the Blues in their 2-2 draw with Swansea City this past weekend, has insisted that he's used to playing with Costa after starring alongside him at Atletico Madrid.
Falcao will no doubt be hoping to replicate Costa's debut campaign at the Bridge, where the Brazilian-born Spanish international scored a number of crucial goals to help Jose Mourinho's side secure the Premier League title.

One thing's for sure, the ex-Manchester United forward is certainly happy to be back alongside Costa at Stamford Bridge.
Falcao stated: "He is crazy! And happy. I know him from Atletico and we enjoyed very good times. We shared very good moments and he is a great guy. Among funny moments there, I remember from the cold pool he sent the water over the players - every time!
"We are used to playing together, and the 2012/13 year was very good for Atletico when we scored a lot of goals. We are different kinds of strikers and we complement each other."
One thing's for sure, if Chelsea are going to retain their Premier League title this season, then they're going to need Costa to produce the goods once again.
Ultimately, alongside Eden Hazard last term, Costa was the club's standout player in the attacking department, and he will no doubt have a huge role to play this time round.
Falcao, too, must prove his credentials for the club and play his part. There's no doubt about it, the Colombian must improve after last season's failure. If Costa struggles on the injury scene, then Falcao has to be ready.
