Stamford Bridge ace admits his goalscoring exploits could stutter.
Chelsea striker Diego Costa has began the season by doing what so many who have come before him have found difficult; scoring goals.
However, according to the Daily Mirror, he has admitted that he may not be able to continue this rich vein of form for much longer.
Having finally replaced Didier Drogba, Costa is already well on his way to outscoring the likes of Mateja Kezman, Hernan Crespo, Andriy Shevchenko, Claudio Pizarro, Nicolas Anelka, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto’o and, of course, Fernando Torres.
However, he has paid tribute to those strikers in his own special way, and has claimed that there will come a time when he himself will struggle to score.
“It is different for every striker who comes here,’’ said Costa, reflecting on his lightning start, compared to so many of his predecessors in the Roman Abramovich era.
“Every striker has their way of playing and their strengths and a different team behind them. That is very important. If you do not have the team behind you then you can’t do things on your own. It all depends on the team. It could be because of that.
“I try to play in the best manner, and hopefully things will continue like this. But there will be a moment when I cannot score – that is football.’’
