Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa has been named in a 20-man squad to fly to England for Thursday’s Europa League semi-final first leg at Arsenal.

Boss Diego Simeone said at the weekend the Spain forward had “no chance” of being fit for the game at Emirates Stadium because of a hamstring injury.

He has missed three games since limping out of the quarter-final second leg against Sporting Lisbon.

Costa has scored six goals in 18 games since his move from Chelsea.
