Diego Costa does not have a serious injury after colliding with the post in Atletico Madrid’s 2-0 win at Getafe today, the La Liga leaders have confirmed via twitter.

The Brazilian-born Spain international had an eventual afternoon, missing a penalty before putting the visitors 2-0 up late on with a tap in.
But Costa appeared to badly injure himself when scoring the goal and was stretched off, leaving Atletico Madrid fans sweating on his fitness ahead of the crucial league and Champions League run-ins.
Chelsea supporters may also have had some thoughts on seeing the Brazilian writhing in pain; Costa is reportedly the Blues top summer transfer target but the Londoners are set to face Atletico in the Champions League semi-final, where the forward could have a key role.
No doubt this news will be met with a little joy and a little despair in West London.
