Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa set to make Wolves debut at West Ham on Saturday amid doubts over fitness of Raul Jimenez and Sasa Kalajdzic ruled out by knee injury

Diego Costa is in line to make his Wolves debut at West Ham on Saturday as doubts surround the fitness of Raul Jimenez.

Jimenez has been struggling with a groin injury that saw him pull up in the warm-up before the 1-0 win over Southampton on September 3, and Mexico boss Gerardo Martino admitted he was ‘worried’ about the centre-forward this week.

With summer signing Sasa Kalajdzic out for the long-term with knee ligament damage, that means Costa will have a significant role to play when Premier League action resumes, especially with Wolves having scored only three times in the competition this term.
