Chelsea are set to send Diego Costa to undergo scans regarding a knee injury he picked up in their 1-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.
Costa was the hero on the day with the winning goal, while his clever movement led to last man Per Mertesacker being sent off in the first half.
However, Blues interim boss Guus Hiddink has revealed that the 27-year-old will be sent for scans after he picked up a knee injury, but is confident that his star striker will not be sidelined for a long period of time.
“We’ll see, well make some scans but I don’t think it’s very very serious,” he is quoted by the London Evening Standard.
The Dutch manager also revealed that he told Costa to keep his cool and focus on his goalscoring rather than being involved in unneeded clashes, and was happy to see the Spain international listening to his advice.
“He’s focusing on what he’s good at, we didn’t need a big conversation but agreed he wouldn’t waste energy on what he didn’t need,
Costa has been in fine form in recent weeks, scoring eight goals since the arrival of Hiddink as the new manager following Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
