Former Premier League midfielder Jamie Redknapp says that Chelsea's Diego Costa is the "real deal" following his hat-trick against Swansea City at the weekend.

Jamie Redknapp has praised Chelsea striker Diego Costa following his impressive start to life at the club.

The Spanish international has scored seven goals in his first four games for the Blues and netted a hat-trick in the 4-2 win over Swansea City at the weekend.

"Chelsea spent an awful lot of time and money trying to replace Didier Drogba. It looks like they have finally found their man," former Premier League midfielder Redknapp is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"What more can you say about Diego Costa? He has arrived in the Premier League and is probably thinking: 'Everyone is scared of me and I've got Cesc Fabregas to supply the bullets.' He must be absolutely loving it.

"He has seven goals in four games — it took Drogba 18 games to match that — and Costa is the complete package, scoring with both feet and his head. He is the real deal."

Costa joined Chelsea from Atletico Madrid for a reported fee of £32m in July.
