Diego Costa has been labelled the inferior player in this former Chelsea manager’s eyes when compared to Manchester United’s Radamel Falcao.
Glenn Hoddle has revealed that he believes Manchester United’s Radamel Falcao is a better player than Chelsea’s Diego Costa, despite the Spanish international’s superb start to life in the Premier League.

The former England and Blues boss believes his old side have done great business bringing Costa to the club, and that he is the missing link that can drive them forward this season.
United have gone one better in his opinion though, with Falcao seen as the superior player.
Hoddle praised the Chelsea summer signing’s attributes, labelling him the perfect fit for the Premier League, and pointing out his excellent on the field relationship with fellow new boy Cesc Fabregas.
With seven goals already Costa has really hit the ground running, while Falcao hasn’t had the chance to really show what he can bring to the Premier League yet with a solitary substitute performance against QPR to his name.
The Colombian’s record suggests he could easily go on to overtake his former Atletico Madrid teammate and clinch the golden boot, but he certainly has some catching up to do, and if Costa can continue in this vein of form then surely Falcao can’t catch him.
