Atletico Madrid return to action on Wednesday against Huesca and the question for coach Diego Simeone is a simple one: can Luis Suarez and Diego Costa play together?

Suarez scored twice on his Atletico debut after joining from Barça in Sunday's 6-1 win over Granada, while Costa was also on target in the rout. 

"They could both start together," Simeone said in a news conference. "Or Costa or Suarez from the start. In the 90 minutes, I imagine they will play together or on their own.

"Diego's different to Luis. He's much more about the movement to the flanks, much more about stretching the team. And what we've seen and always see with Suarez is shorter movements, diagonals across the area and a lof presence in the box, above all linking play with his back to goal. 

"So of course they can play together, I am sure. We will see in the moment and the situation. The important thing is that they both give us everything they can. Both Diego with his character and Luis with his stature, they're really important for us." 

On Suarez, Simeone added: "He's a player with a huge stature and history in the game that has arrived with humility and desperate to get started and show on the pitch that he can be important for the team."
