Costa (nose) is starting Saturday against Newcastle.

Costa suffered a broken nose in training Thursday, but he'll apparently play through the ailment while wearing a mask. It's a fantastic fantasy matchup, as Newcastle have allowed 26 away goals this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa suffered a broken nose during training Thursday and is questionable for Saturday's match against Newcastle, manager Guus Hiddink said Friday.

Costa did not train with the squad Friday, as he was getting fitted for a protective mask. If he's able to get comfortable with the mask, then he's likely to play, but it's certainly something that could hinder him in the early going. If Costa does not start, Loic Remy is likely next in line.

Costa scored a goal on three shots (two on target), but was withdrawn on 68 minutes with what appeared to be an injury in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Arsenal.

Costa was electric all afternoon. He drew a red card from Per Mertesacker in the 18th minute and then converted a good, low cross from Branislav Ivanovic in the 23rd minute. The ever-controversial striker has been in an outstanding run of form, scoring five goals and adding two assists in his past five Premier League matches. It was a bit concerning when he was withdrawn in the 68th minute as he appeared to pick up an injury of some kind. However, it did not look to be related to the bruised shin that held him out of training for much of the week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa will start against Arsenal on Sunday, after limited training during the week.

Costa is a crucial part of Chelsea's attack and has been in great form recently, and despite not training much this week, he'll take his regular spot leading the attack.

Costa (shin) has not trained much this week, but will be available for Sunday's derby against Arsenal.

Costa played an instrumental role in the last match against Arsenal, getting Gabriel sent off and led Chelsea to victory over a 10-man Arsenal. The bruised shin he suffered looked quite serious, but despite not training much this week, manager Gus Hiddink believes he'll be available. Costa has been in a strong run of form of late, scoring four goals and adding two assists in his last four matches.

Costa was diagnosed with a bruised tibia Monday after suffering the leg injury during Saturday's match against Everton, the BBC reports.

Costa had a goal and an assist before suffering the injury, and while it's certainly good news that he did not suffer a fracture, the injury makes him very questionable to face Arsenal this weekend.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa was taken to the hospital after Saturday's match against Everton to get scans on his shin injury, the London Evening Standard reports.

Costa had to be taken off in the 80th minute due to the injury, and it remains unclear how exactly he suffered the ailment. Costa has been excellent since the sacking of manager Jose Mourinho, but if he has to miss any time, Loic Remy could start up front.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa scored a goal on three shots (one on target) and tallied an assist in Saturday's 3-3 draw with Everton.

What a difference a new manager makes. Since Jose Mourinho was sacked, Costa has four goals and two assists in five matches. Despite his discipline problems, that reared their ugly head in two separate suspensions, he's still a potent goal scorer when playing up the center of the pitch. He has nine goals and six assists in 26 matches across all competitions.
