Chelsea will be without Diego Costa for their trip to face Manchester United on Monday due to suspension.
The Spain international returned to scoring form with a double as Guus Hiddink’s second spell at Stamford Bridge began with a 2-2 home draw with Watford on Boxing Day.
However, Costa was shown a yellow card in the 88th minute following a late challenge on Craig Cathcart.
The booking subsequently rules the striker out of Monday’s visit to Old Trafford, when Dutchman Hiddink will hope to pile more misery on under-pressure compatriot Louis van Gaal.
