Another win for Chelsea, another goal for Diego Costa. Many can't wait to see the back of 2016, but for Chelsea, these are tremendously fun days.
Costa grabbed his league-leading 14th goal of the season to add the insurance in Chelsea's 4-2 win over Stoke City, and as has become tradition during this 13-match winning run, hugged it out with Antonio Conte afterwards. Wonder what Conte's saying? (And in what language?)

We can only speculate (see below).
But the bromance is strong and is basically a microcosm of Chelsea's season. From supposed clashes between Costa and Conte in that 3-0 win over Leicester City to public displays of bromance, Chelsea have gone from back-to-back losses to Liverpool and Arsenal to 13 games won in a row. What more could you ask for?

Hopefully, the new year will bring more of the same.
