Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says Diego Costa has not looked the same player in the Champions League this season after his heroics for Atletico Madrid last year, the Daily Mail reports.

The Spanish international, who has been so prolific in the Premier League, did not manage a single goal in Europe this season as Chelsea exited at the first knockout stage.
Hasselbaink is concerned by this stat, suggesting the player could already be in decline after his eight goals at this level last term.
“Last year he had that space when playing for Atletico Madrid, but this campaign he hasn’t looked as good in Europe as when he’s playing in the Premier League,” Hasselbaink said.
