The Chelsea striker is in red-hot this season, bagging 13 goals in 17 appearances, to soar to the top of the top-flight scoring charts.
He made the difference on Saturday against Crystal Palace to fire the Blues to their 11th consecutive win.
“Chelsea striker Diego Costa is in red-hot this season”
And he has earned high praise from former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Neville.
When asked on Twitter who the best player in the Premier League at present is, Neville replied: “Costa.”
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will be unable to call on Costa when Bournemouth come to town on Boxing Day.
The Spain international picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Palace for a petulant foul on Joe Ledley.
