Diego Costa can lay claim to arguably being the star of European football at the halfway stage of the season.
Going into the winter break, Atletico Madrid’s La Liga title challenge looks alive and well with Diego Simeone’s men looking like genuine challengers to Barcelona and Real Madrid as well as favourites against AC Milan in the Champions League knockout rounds.
The above graphic was featured on Monday Night Football to show how well Suarez is finishing now, after being wasteful on arrival in the Premier League.
Well, Costa is smashing some of the best strikers in world football for chance conversion.
The fact the Atletico Madrid striker has seemingly come from nowhere over recent months and chose Spain over Brazil makes him all the more fascinating.
And, keep an eye out for that overhead kick goal v Getafe. Special!
