Diego Costa has been fantastic this season and currently leads Sergio Aguero and teammate Eden Hazard in the race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot award after scoring nine goals in his first 11 appearances.

The Spanish striker isn’t bad on FIFA this year, either.

Rated at 86 overall, Costa has 85 for shooting, 80 for dribbling and 89 for physicality.

He also has 76 for pace, 67 for passing and 42 for his defensive work.

And now the guys over at Dream Team FC claim to have discovered a ‘glitch’ that guarantees you can score with the 28-year-old every time.

It works best with Costa - apparently

Apparently it works best with Costa, although there have been reports from players that it also works with other tall strikers.

So, what do you need to do?

When taking a corner, whip the ball towards the near post, where Costa will be positioned.

As the ball comes over, press shoot and, all going to plan, he’ll put the ball into the net with an overhead kick no less.

Here’s how it works…

A similar bug was fixed

Dream Team add that there was a similar glitch when the game first came out which meant you could easily score goals from short corners.

However, a patch fixed that particular bug.

Now, though, you have a new chance to annoy all your mates.

Pick Chelsea, start Costa, and watch the overhead kicks rain in.
