Oscar had a special birthday message for his Chelsea team-mate Diego Costa

Oscar has taken to social media to send Diego Costa a heartfelt birthday message after the Chelsea striker celebrated his 28th birthday last week.

The Spain international has made a strong start to the new season under manager Antonio Conte, scoring six goals and making two assists in seven Premier League games for the Blues.

Costa was on target once again as Chelsea eased to a 2-0 victory over Hull City in the Premier League last weekend as they returned to winning ways in the top flight.

The striker is currently on international duty with Spain but Oscar was quick to use his personal Instagram account to pay tribute to his Chelsea team-mate on Friday.

Oscar posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Congratulations @diego.costa Best wishes, and may you get the peace and health you deserve. Make the most of your day!!! Hugs.”
