Diego Costa is a versatile forward who can create goalscoring opportunities in all kinds of ways. Against Southampton on Sunday, he scored via the wonder-strike variety.

Costa struck an absolute peach of a goal to put Chelsea 2-0 up on Southampton and likely send the Blues to their fourth straight Premier League win, moving just a point off the top of the Premier League table.

The goal is the eighth of the season for the 28-year-old and the 40th Premier League goal of Costa’s career. According to Opta, the 64 matches it has taken Costa to reach 40 goals is seven games faster than it took Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
