Thibaut Courtois: Why Diego Costa and Falcao are compatible to play together


Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says strikers Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao can play together in boss Jose Mourinho's squad.

The Belgium international - who played alongside both Falcao and Costa at Atletico Madrid - is convinced that the two strikers could form a lethal partnership at Stamford Bridge despite a below-par start to the new campaign.

"First of all, the manager will put the starting 11 together and see who is playing with who," Courtois told NBC.

"I know Falcao very well.

"He is a top player, he had his injury one year ago, and at Manchester United, he was maybe unlucky and maybe needed some confidence, but I think if he is on top form, he will add a lot to this team and score a lot of important goals for us.

"If he has to play together with Costa, it is not a problem at all. I remember when we beat Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey, the third goal was a dribble from Falcao in midfield and a pass to Costa, who finished it.

"They know how to play together, and I hope it works and all of the squad will have an amazing season, and in one year, we can look back happy and add some more trophies to our list."
