Diego Costa continues to make Chelsea fans miss his performances at Stamford Bridge after scoring again in World Cup action on Wednesday evening.
The Atletico Madrid man played a vital role in Spain’s narrow win over Iran, netting the only goal of the game to bring his tally for the tournament to three, after scoring a double against Portugal.
He now has a great chance of competing for the Golden Boot award in Russia, perhaps more evidence that Chelsea made a grave mistake in letting him go and signing Alvaro Morata as a replacement.
That’s certainly the view of some Chelsea fans, who desperately want to see the powerful 29-year-old make a return to the English Premier League, believing that Morata was a massive downgrade on what Costa brought to the team.
Will Costa keep firing in the goals for Spain at the World Cup and make Blues supporters miss him more?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts after his Iran performance…

Diego Costa, having a disasterclass, is still way more decisive than Morata. God forgive us for exchanging those 2. #cfc
