26-Year-Old Forward Chelsea Premier
Diego Costa Contract Information:
Transferred from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea FC in July 2014.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said after Saturday's match against Crystal Palace that Costa will not play in Tuesday's Champions League match against Maribor due to his hamstring injury.
Costa was been dealing with a hamstring issue all season, but Saturday's match was the first one that he's missed. He co-leads the Premier League in goals and while he will be missed Tuesday, Chelsea should certainly be able to grab all three points at home. Costa's injury is severe enough to keep him out of two matches following his participation in two games for Spain during the international break, and it's unclear if he will be ready to face Manchester United on Oct. 26. Loic Remy is expected to start in his place, as he did against Crystal Palace.
