LONDON (AP) - Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink says Diego Costa broke his nose in training but still expects the striker to be available for the English Premier League game against Newcastle on Saturday.

Hiddink said on Friday that Costa was injured accidentally the day before as he challenged for a header.

Costa has seven goals in his last nine games, regaining form since Hiddink was hired as an interim manager following the departure of Jose Mourinho.
