Costa Odds On To Miss Out On Chelsea’s Next Starting XI

It would appear that all is on the verge of becoming rosy once again in the shared garden of Diego Costa and Chelsea although William Hill are still odds on that the striker does not start against Hull at the weekend. He is 1/2 to fail to make the starting XI, 6/4 he does.


Since the falling out, Costa has slipped down the betting for top Premier League goalscorer with Harry Kane the 5/2 favourite, Zlatan Ibrahimovic 3/1 and then Costa at 7/2.


Costa is 1/3 to remain at Chelsea this summer and 9/4 to leave for any club in China.


Will Diego Costa start for Chelsea against Hull: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no


Top Premier League goal scorer: 5/2 Harry Kane;3/1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic; 7/2 Diego Costa; 4/1 Alexis Sanchez; 4/1 Sergio Aguero; 16/1 BAR
