Stuart Pearce: Costa only missing one attribute that Ronaldo and Messi have


Stuart Pearce considers the Chelsea striker to be
'unstoppable', with it only the ability to beat
opponents that separates him from Barcelona and
Madrid icons
Diego Costa has ‘got everything’ and would occupy
a standing in the global game alongside Lionel
Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo if he could run at
opponents, claims Stuart Pearce.
The former England international considers the
Chelsea striker to be in ‘unstoppable’ form at
present, with 10 goals netted in 13 Premier League
appearances.
Why Chelsea have title race edge
That return is enough to have him sat joint-top of
the scoring charts, with Manchester City’s Sergio
Aguero pushing him hard in the race for the
2016-17 Golden Boot.
Both men are likely to have a big say in what their
respective employers achieve this season, with their
firepower set to be crucial in the tussle for major
honours.
Pearce believes Costa will be ‘key’ for Chelsea, with
the Spain international sitting only fractionally
behind the superstars of Barcelona and Real Madrid
that are held up as the finest footballers on the
planet.
Pressed on who the Blues’ leading man is at
present, with Eden Hazard also back to his best,
Pearce said in the Daily Express: "The unstoppable
Costa, at this moment in time.
'Chelsea have title rivals spooked'
"For me, he's got everything. The only thing he
hasn't got is the ability to go past somebody one-
on-one like a [Lionel] Messi or [Cristiano] Ronaldo.
"Apart from that he's got a great work ethic for the
team, he's got a great eye for a goal, he links play,
his movement's clever.
"He's got everything, he is so key for Chelsea."

Costa has helped to fire Antonio Conte’s side to the
top of the Premier League table, and Pearce sees
them staying there if they are able to leave the
Etihad Stadium with something in a crunch clash on
Saturday – with fixtures against West Brom,
Sunderland, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Stoke
carrying them through to the end of the calendar
year.
Just like Bale - the Victor Moses story
He added: "If you take Chelsea, seven victories on
the bounce, their next games after this one are
really key matches. Five games, all winnable.
"If they can get a result, whether it be a point or
three, come New Year's Day they'll be top of the
league."
