Costa had two shots off target and one dribble in Saturday's 4-1 win over Bournemouth.

Costa played mainly as a decoy to help open spaces for runs behind the Cherries' defense and turned in a pale statistical performance. Despite having 11 goals and five assists the striker has been a shadow of himself with a number of injuries and stretches of poor team performances hampering his own form. He hasn't scored in Premier League since Mar 1 and an encounter with the Spurs - one of the league's best defenses - on May 2 may extend this dry spell to over two months.

Arsenal may be eliminated from the title race, but a home match against Norwich easily puts Petr Cech on top of the goalkeeper rankings this week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa (suspension) will have his ban extended an additional match due to improper conduct and will miss both Saturday's match against Aston Villa and the following match against Swansea City.

Costa will be eligible to return against Man City on April 16, but the talented striker has spent too much time in the stands due to disciplinary suspensions. He missed two Premier League matches earlier in the season after a confrontation with Gabriel of Arsenal, picked up a yellow card accumulation ban and will now miss two more matches after this. Furthermore, he's sitting on eight yellow cards, which could put him in line for another yellow card accumulation ban.

Costa (suspension) will miss out on the West Ham match this weekend, but the FA is looking to add a third match onto his suspension, according to manager Guus Hiddink.

With Costa out, either Loic Remy or Bertrand Traore will be turned to up front for the Blues. Even at home, it's hard to trust either forward as they've played so little this season.

The FA will not take action against Costa for a gesture he made toward fans as he exited the field at the half in Chelsea's loss to Everton on Saturday, reports Sky Sports.

The gesture Costa made was one of two incidents the FA was probing, but no action will be taken over that specific issue. The charge of improper conduct for his actions in the match that saw him receive two yellow cards and a one-match suspension is still active. Costa may respond to that charge by Thursday.

Costa has been charged with improper conduct by the FA following his actions that earned him two yellow cards in Saturday's FA Cup loss to Everton, reports Sky Sports.

The forward has until Thursday evening to respond to the charge, and can provide his observations to the FA through Wednesday regarding the gesture he made to fans as he left the field at the half. The charge means that his automatic one-match suspension for being sent off could be extended.

Costa was sent off in the 84th minute of Saturday's FA Cup tie against Everton for two yellow cards.

Costa has struggled to stay on the field of late with injuries and now this issue will sideline him, yet again. He had a poor game ending up with only one shot off target. He'll miss the London derby against the feisty Hammers on Saturday with the suspension. Bertrand Traore or Loic Remy will get the start upfront.

Costa (leg) passed his fitness test and is making the start for the FA Cup match against Everton on Saturday.

Costa has been in great form as of late with a goal in each of his last two matches. Having him back up top will fuel the Chelsea attack and put pressure on Everton. However, if he's unable to go the full 90 minutes look for Bertrand Traore or Loic Remy to substitute him off the pitch.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa is questionable for Saturday's FA Cup match against Everton because of a hip injury he suffered during Wednesday's Champions League match against PSG, manager Guus Hiddink said Friday.

Costa received treatment Thursday and Friday, so his absence from full training certainly doesn't lend optimism that he'll play Saturday. If he does not, Loic Remy, Alexandre Pato or Bertrand Traore could start up front.
