Gary Neville names Chelsea star as Premier League’s best player on Twitter
Gary Neville believes Chelsea striker Diego Costa is the Premier League's best player on current form
Gary Neville has named Chelsea striker Diego Costa as the Premier League’s best player.
The Spain international scored Chelsea’s first-half winner in a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon to extend the west London side’s winning run to 11 games.
Costa has already scored an impressive 13 times in 17 Premier League games in the 2016-17 season under new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte after the Italian’s appointment earlier this year.
The 28-year-old centre-forward has also made six assists in the current campaign to help the Blues storm to the top of the Premier League title.
Costa will miss Chelsea’s home clash against Bournemouth due to suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season at Palace.
Asked during a question and answer session on Twitter who he considers to be the best player in the Premier League, Neville posted the below response.
