Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has confirmed that striker Diego Costa is in the hospital after the Spaniard was forced out of Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Everton at Stamford Bridge.
With 11 minutes left to play at the Bridge, Costa who was becoming a real threat as the game progressed was forced out of the action after picking up a shin injury. Loic Remy, making his return from injury, came on to lead the Chelsea attack.
The Chelsea boss who gave an update on the Spaniard’s condition in a post-match press conference said;
“He’s in hospital and they will check with a scan. We don’t know the results yet, I hope it’s not too bad. It’s on his shin. We hope Diego will come out of the hospital in good health. He was in a lot of pain.”
Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas scored two goals in the space of two minutes to bring Chelsea back into the game after Everton had gone 2-0 up shortly after half time.
John Terry then ensured the Blues took a point controversially, and extended their unbeaten run to seven matches with a late equalizer after Ramiro Funes Mori appeared to have won it for the visitors with a 90th-minute strike.
