Diego Costa handed Guus Hiddink a boost by training alongside the first-team ahead of Chelsea’s trip to MK Dons in the FA Cup.

According to ESPN, Costa was pictured on Chelsea TV making his way out to a training session with the Blues squad.

Falcao is likely to remain out of action, whilst Loic Remy and Patrick Bamford continue to be linked with moves away from the club.

Chelsea travel to Championship side on Sunday afternoon in the hope of securing a place in the fifth round of the competition, as the Blues may have to go all the way in the FA Cup to secure a place in Europe next season.

Costa is likely to feature, possibly from the start against Karl Robinson’s as Hiddink looks to take the competition very seriously.

Despite facing League One opposition in the form of Scunthorpe in the previous round, Hiddink named a near full strength starting 11, which could be repeated on Sunday.
