Striker Costa was sent off in last week’s FA Cup loss at Everton and Hazard has ongoing hip and groin problems.

Belgium boss Marc Wilmots says he expects Hazard to be sidelined for up to four weeks due to his injury concerns, although there has been no official word from Chelsea on how long the Belgian will be out for.

Alexandre Pato could make his long-awaited debut in Costa’s absence, but Radamel Falcao (thigh) is continuing to find fitness and defender Kurt Zouma (knee) is out for the season.

Provisional squad: Courtois, Begovic, Ivanovic, Fabregas, Rahman, Oscar, Hazard, Pato, Mikel, Traore, Kenedy, Pedro, Remy, Miazga, Matic, Willian, Cahill, Terry, Blackman, Azpilicueta, Aina, Loftus-Cheek, Clarke-Salter.
