Fantasy update: Diego out, Drogba in

Avoiding injuries is a big part of being successful in fantasy football. Make sure to update your lineup accordingly.

Shaun Botterill

Prolific Chelsea striker Diego Costa is set to miss this weekend's match against Manchester United due to a continually nagging hamstring injury. Personally, I had Costa as captain and he has been personally responsible for keeping my team afloat. It's a big problem for José Mourinho, and if you were looking to go to his backup Loïc Rémy, it will be a problem for you as well. The Frenchman is out too after leaving yesterday's Champions League match early on. You could always go for Didier Drogba!

Another choice would be to move away from Chelsea strikers. Graziano Pelle has been in incredible form for Southampton lately, and is probably your best choice at a good value of £8.1. Christian Benteke is who I chose to be my new captain, as the Aston Villa man should have an easier time with the QPR defence than Everton's (hopefully).

Are you replacing Costa or just dropping him to the bench? Let us know in the comments!
