Diego Costa left the field on a stretcher against Tottenham Hotspur, but his injury is hopefully not as serious as it looked.
That is according to Express & Star journalist Liam Keen, who was speaking on the publication’s podcast today.
Fans have been patiently waiting for an update on Costa, who fell awkwardly when challenging Oliver Skipp for a header.
The 34-year-old received lengthy treatment, before it was decided he could not continue. Raul Jimenez replaced him, and put in an outstanding performance.
Costa looked glum as he left the pitch on a stretcher, leading fans to worry he had done something serious.
Julen Lopetegui will likely give an update on where Costa is at on Friday at his press conference.
But journalist Keen has today spoken about Costa, and has suggested it could be good news. Or at least better news than many expected seeing the ace leave the field.
He said: “I can say this with a decent amount of confidence – no news is good news. Had it been something serious, the club would have announced it by now.
“As far as I understand it, it’s not as serious as first feared, particularly when you go down with a knee (injury) and you get stretchered off.
“It will be interesting to see the exact lay-off time. But I don’t think it’s as bad as some people were worried about.”
Costa is still yet to score for Wolves after joining as a free agent in September.
Hope over Diego Costa after striker leaves field on a stretcher against Tottenham
We will see what Lopetegui says later this week but this is an encouraging update from Keen.
The scenes as Costa left the pitch against Tottenham were concerning. His face suggested he had done some serious damage.
Hopefully, it will only be a short lay-off for Costa.
We have seen recently that he can still have an impact for Wanderers.
He may not have scored yet, but his cameo against Southampton help Wolves win that game.
