FIFA 16 prediction: Diego Costa
Diego Costa – Chelsea & Spain
FIFA 15 Rating – 85
Predicted FIFA 16 Rating – 87
Diego Costa made the transfer from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea last summer after a highly successful spell with the La Liga team and easily adjusted to English Premier League football. A return of 19 goals in just 25 league appearances has fully justified the money spent by Chelsea and helped deliver the Premier League title to Stamford Bridge. Costa did miss some parts of the season with small injuries and he drew a blank in Champions League games so there is still improvement that the Spaniard will be looking to make. With a full summer off however, Costa will be looking to work hard on his fitness to ensure he is at the top of his game for the start of next season.
Internationally, Costa has been used sparingly by Spain in their European Championship qualifying games so far, featuring in only two games and scoring the one goal. Costa will be hoping that another good season can lead onto a successful Euro 2016 with Spain as they look to defend their title.
Now seen as one of the most deadly finishers in Europe, Chelsea fans will be hoping that Costa can stay injury free next season as they aim for both Premier League and Champions League glory.
