Costa (hamstring) will not feature against Leicester City on Sunday.

Costa was stellar in his previous two contests as he recorded a goal and an assist. While the team may have had a forgettable year, the forward managed 14 scores in all competitions despite appearing in just 36 contests. If he can stay healthy for the entire campaign, the 27-year-old is poised to have another standout season in 2016-17.

Olivier Giroud has a goal and two assists in his last two matches, and with Danny Welbeck's knee injury, the Frenchman has no competition for playing time in Sunday's season-finale.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa had one goal on three shots (three on goal) in Saturday's 3-2 loss versus Sunderland.

Costa's first goal since the beginning of March came off a deflection that ended up just outside the six-yard box. Costa's next match comes Wednesday versus Liverpool, where he will look for his 13th league goal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Costa tallied an assist on four key passes and one shot on target in Monday's 2-2 draw to Tottenham.

Costa has been isolated up front for the most of the game and couldn't put much threat on goal and now goes without a Premier League score since Mar 1. He was very useful for his team, though, and made a very smart pass to Eden Hazard for his sensational equalizer. The striker has been very distracted with extracurricular activities of late and was lucky not to get a yellow card on any of his reactions to scuffles and tackles from Spurs players.

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.

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.
