Steven Gerrard highlights the importance of Diego Costa to Chelsea’s success after Porto win (Video)

dieFormer Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has claimed that misfiring Chelsea striker Diego Costa is the key to turning around the Blues’ season.

The Spanish forward has had somewhat of a turbulent time of things in West London as of late, and has been left out of the Chelsea starting line up in recent weeks, due to his apparent misbehavior and disruptive attitude.

But the 27-year-old was back in the starting line up for Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Porto on Wednesday night, and whilst the striker did not get on the scoresheet, there were signs that Costa is ready to settle back down and get back to showing the form which made him one of the Premier League’s best strikers last season.
