Diego Costa is a Marmite player – loved by Chelsea fans, hated by supporters of other clubs.
That's a good thing because the Spaniard has been the Blues' standout player so far this season.
Costa is a warrior and the archetypal Premier League number nine – look at Alan Shearer for instance. A fantastic goalscorer but one who had an aggressive streak.
His antics at times can frustrate but when given the opportunity to score, you fully expect him to take it.
It's always the easy option to give awards to a striker but, in this case, it is merited as Costa drags defenders away and brings others into the game.
If you take the 4-0 win over Manchester United as an example, the 28-year-old may not have scored himself but he took defenders away from others who could capitalise.
Costa is an aggressive player, everyone knows that and opposition teams try and wind him up but, in credit to him, he has managed to avoid as much of the controversy he found himself in during the Jose Mourinho era.
Eden Hazard has also started to find the form that deserted him under 'The Special One' last season and has helped run the midfield.
N'Golo Kante has taken up the Makelele role and is performing as well as he did for Leicester, covering every blade of grass with grace and elegance.
But it is Costa's sheer drive that has led him to be the leading Blues player so far this season.
