Despite his recent excellent form, Diego Costa did not make the matchday squad for Chelsea in their 1-1 draw with Stoke on Saturday.

Ahead of the Stoke clash, Guus Hiddink confirmed that the Spanish (Brazilian-born) striker missed out due to a minor tendon injury.

Whilst Bertrand Traore scored a terrific goal, Chelsea’s striking options, which also include Loic Remy and Alexandre Pato, are not those that will strike fear into the likes of Thiago Silva and David Luiz.
