Diego Costa will miss the next game against Bournemouth due to suspension, after being booked for the fifth time this season.

Thibaut Courtois believes the league’s top striker will be missed against Bournemouth, while also urging whoever comes in to do a good job.

“It’s a big blow because he’s a top striker,” Courtois said. “He scored his 13th goal of the season and he’s in top form. He’s been one booking away for many games now, so if he’d had a bit more luck he would have stayed like that until the New Year, when it’s gone, but hopefully Michy, or whoever the manager plays there, will do well.”
