The Potters have failed to score in five of the last six Premier League games against Chelsea and have managed just one win in their last 12 meetings with the Blues winning 9.
Costa will lead the line against Stoke and will have his attacking partners, Cesc Fabregas available too.
Cesc is back after missing the win over Hull through suspension. Didier Drogba should be fit after overcoming an ankle problem while Kurt Zouma is available despite being stretched off in the Capital Cup win over Derby.
Thibaut Courtois is expected to be fit after missing the last two games, however Jose Mourinho refused to confirm if the Belgian stopper would be available.
Hughes meanwhile is sweating on Bojan Krkic. The attacker injured in his hip in the draw with Crystal Palace last weekend but should be fit.
Defender Marc Muniesa has recovered from the hamstring strain and will be available while Stephen Ireland’s knee complaint is not serious and he should make the squad.
Stoke fans looking for hope can find it in the shape of last season’s victory at the Britannia Stadium and the fact that Hughes has won two and lost none of his last four matches as a manager in home games against his former club.
An interesting Monday night football fact, Stoke have not lost any of their their last six Premier League games played on a Monday, winning two and drawing four and they beat Newcastle 1-0 at home earlier this season.
