#7. Diego Costa
The Spain international was known to be a tough customer to deal with during his time in Spain with Atletico Madrid. Now at Chelsea, Costa has gone on to become one of the most infamous and at times dirtiest players in England. With such a reputation, and imposing physical presence, there are only a few defenders who have the courage to stand toe to toe with a player who is known to lash out at players when provoked. Nonetheless, Costa has proven to be a huge asset for the London giants who may have unearthed a perfect replacement for Didier Drogba. Getting under players’ skin and making a nuisance of himself, Costa is a man of steel.
