Diego Costa has suffered a broken nose and he is a doubt to face Newcastle on Saturday.

Costa sustained the injury while challenging for a header with an academy player who was brought in to training groung with the first team.

According to manager Guus Hiddink.

“It was not a tough duel but he put the nose into the back of the head and he was very unlucky,” said Hiddink.

“He will return today because they put on a mask. So we are a Zorro team, with lots of masks. He will do some light training in the afternoon so we can see how he is with the mask. It was a small incident. I think he will be available.”
