Chelsea Striker Diego Costa Is Expected To Return In Time For PSG Clash

Diego Costa was forced to sit out of Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Stoke due to a minor tendon injury but is expected to face Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday. The injury blow came a day after Guus Hiddink admitted he was unable to rest Costa because it's difficult to put a brake on him.

Hiddink said of the Spain international on Friday: “It’s difficult to put a brake on him. He's in perfect physical shape but he must be careful not to overload. He is difficult to stop. He wants to play every game. I must be careful with that but he will start against Stoke. Who am I to stop this man? I talk with him about his physical state which is superb. There is always a danger of overdoing it. We must let him go but sometimes I have to put him on a leash”.

Costa's replacement Bertrand Traore managed to fill Costa's boots by scoring in the 39th minute to ensure Chelsea remain unbeaten in the Premier League during Hiddink's second spell in charge. Despite Traore's goalscoring display at Stamford Bridge, Hiddink will be hoping to have Costa back in time for their make-or-break Champions League match against PSG.
