There's little doubt who the star of Chelsea's superb start to the season is. Diego Costa's seven goals in his first ever four games for the Blues helped Mourinho's side to maximum points from their opening four fixtures in the Premier League. A ruthless striker was the missing ingredient from Chelsea's push towards the title last season with Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o all failing to consistently find the back of he net.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says that striker Diego Costa will return up front for Chelsea against Premier League champions Manchester City in a huge match on Sunday.

Costa has made a brilliant start to his Chelsea career, scoring seven times in four Premier League matches already. But the £32 million signing from Atletico Madrid was only a substitute in Wednesday night's 1-1 draw with Schalke as he his not ready to play more than one game a week, after aggrevating a hamstring problem while on international duty earlier this month.

Last weekend was a surreal one for me. I spent most of the afternoon in York, as well as the morning in Edinburgh and the evening in Manchester. It was surreal because I was there on a Premier League Saturday, but there was little to no evidence of anything Premier League-related going on in the country that is the home to the world's most popular sports league (and the birthplace of the game).

Aston Villa preview: find the defensive balance to spark the attack

The requirement today, obviously, is three Premier League points and a showing much more like the one against Man City than Dortmund.

I suspect it might need some tinkering with the team, but the man over whom the largest question marks remain got the full backing of the manager yesterday. Mesut Ozil's form has been in the spotlight over the last week or two and it came into sharp focus after a limp display in Dortmund (although he was hardly alone in that).
