We`re only two games into the new Premier League season and we all recognize that there is a long way to go before the destination of the title is known.
At this stage of the season the key factors to be acknowledged relate to how your new signings are settling in and are performing.
Having spent some £32 million on Diego Costa, we all hoped the Brazilian born Spaniard would provide the goals that a title campaign can be launched on.
Well, with two games gone Costa has netted twice, something that suggests he could fulfil our desires to have a striker that can, once again, challenge for the Golden Boot.
The fact that those two goals have come from his only two shots on target suggest Costa has a predators instinct, with both goals being scored from close range.
After the 2-0 win over Leicester City, Jose Mourinho was quick to offer the media a few words on his acquisition, remarking,
"I got the feeling in pre-season that his adaption would not be a big deal, he is a happy guy."
"He doesn`t speak good English but he has great communication and has made a good integration into the team. His style of play is adapted to our needs."
"He`s a striker and strikers need goals. He can play better than he did today. It`s the same as the team."
"He scored and it was a critical moment for us."
"We were in the moment where we were getting stronger and it looked like Leicester were in trouble."
"But it`s important that you have the striker who goes there and puts the ball in the net."
It certainly is and Diego Costa is already making headway towards becoming recognised as the striker we yearned for last season.
