Diego Costa set to miss next match as well

Jamie Squire

Diego Costa and his assorted hamstring injuries have been an enduring story-line of the early season.  While he has produced many goals despite the issues, that story unfortunately took a turn for the worse before Chelsea's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, and now it seems that Costa will have to miss at least one more match as well.

Loïc Rémy deputised well enough for the man who's now tied for the Premier League scoring lead (thanks to Spurs gifting Sergio Agüero four goals, including two penalties earlier today), and he should continue to be a fine option for the midweek trip to Slovenia.  But hopefully Diego will be good enough to return to the starting lineup for next weekend's ever more ominous-looking visit to Old Trafford.

As to when Costa might be fully fit?  Jose brought his A-game to that question.
