Antonio Conte has praised Diego Costa’s attitude as Chelsea prepare for their crunch clash against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
The Spanish striker has been in fine form this season and his performances have helped to fire Chelsea to the top of the Premier League table.
Costa has scored an incredible 14 goals in the Premier League this season to help Conte’s men establish themselves as the firm favourites to win the title this season.
New Chelsea boss Conte has been delighted by Costa’s impact this term at Stamford Bridge following the striker’s superb start to the season.
Speaking to Chelsea’s website ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Spurs, Conte said: “Diego is a good guy and with him it’s important to joke, and when it is the moment to work, he works.
“He is always happy and he wants to show this. When you have this type of player who keeps the atmosphere always with good positivity, it’s important.”
Chelsea’s brilliant form this season has been in stark contrast to their struggles last term, when they ended up in 10th place and without a trophy in the Premier League.
The Blues won the League Cup and Premier League back in 2014-15.
