Costa has been suspended for three matches for violent conduct during last Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal, the FA announced Tuesday.

On the plus side for fantasy owners, one of Costa's three matches will be Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Walsall, which means he will only miss two Premier League matches, including this Saturday against Newcastle and Oct. 3 against Southampton. Loic Remy and Falcao will battle it out for the starting job while Costa is ineligible.

Costa was charged with violent conduct by the FA on Monday for his role in an incident during Saturday's match with Arsenal.

Costa is facing a three-match ban if he does not appeal, though he is certainly likely to do just that. The three-match ban could include Chelsea's FA Cup match on Wednesday, which means he would only miss two Premier League matches, one against Newcastle on Saturday and another Oct. 3 against Southampton.

Costa had a quiet afternoon in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Costa had a disappointing two shots and was largely subdued thanks to a spirited performance from the visitors' back four. With an international break to recharge his batteries, Costa will look to get back on the goal trail against Everton on Sept. 12.

Costa registered a goal and an assist in Chelsea's 3-2 win at West Brom on Sunday.

Costa notched his first goal of the season by poaching a shot attempt from teammate Pedro, redirecting the ball into the net 30 minutes into Sunday's contest. Later on, Costa set up Chelsea's third and final goal by chesting the ball into the path of Cesar Azpilicueta, who finished the movement himself. With an influential performance in Chelsea's first win of the campaign, Costa should be in good spirits ahead of this weekend's match versus Crystal Palace.

Costa took a vicious elbow to the head and sustained a number of other minor knocks in Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Costa took a nasty elbow from Fernandinho during stoppage time of the first half, which earned the Brazilian a yellow card—and probably could've been red. Costa remained in the game for the second half, playing the full 90, but couldn't get anything going against the in-form City back four. He'll look to break duck this season in the next fixture against West Brom.

Costa (hamstring) took just one shot, which was on goal, during Saturday's Premier League opener against Swansea City.

Costa was a doubt for the match due to the ailment, but he passed a late fitness test to get the start ahead of Falcao and Loic Remy, the latter of which didn't play at all. When Costa's fully fit, he's locked into the starting striker role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa (hamstring) passed fit and is starting Saturday against Swansea City.

Costa appeared to be a bit of a long shot to play, but he apparently showed enough to get in the lineup. Loic Remy and Falcao are both available off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said Friday that he does not know if Costa (hamstring) will be fit enough to play Saturday against Swansea City.

Costa is expected to train Friday and his availability for Saturday's match will come down to how his body responds. Given it's the first match of the season, it seems unlikely that Mourinho will push Costa before he's fully fit, leaving Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao to battle it out for the starting spot.
