LONDON. — Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois backed teammate Diego Costa to continue his goalscoring spree after the striker scored the winner in Sunday’s 1-0 English Premier League victory over bitter rivals Arsenal.
Costa has struggled to recapture the form he displayed on his debut season, when he netted 20 goals in 26 league appearances to lead Chelsea to the league title.
The 27-year-old appears to have found his scoring touch since Guus Hiddink replaced Jose Mourinho at the helm at Stamford Bridge, scoring six goals in as many appearances in all competitions. — Reuters.
