PSG and Chelsea met in last season’s quarter-finals, with the Blues walking away victorious due to the away goals rule.

The Brazilian admitted that Costa is one of the best strikers in Europe, but also knows he has a reputation of playing physically.

"Diego Costa is one of the top strikers in Europe at the moment,” Silva was quoted as saying by The Mirror.

“He can play, but also he can do battle as well. That is no problem, that is the reason you want to play at this level, to do battle against the best players in the world.

"He is the sort of player that lets you know he is there, but we will also let him know that we are there as well."

Costa has scored 17 goals for Chelsea so far this season, but is yet to get off the mark in the Champions League.
