Finally, there is some good news for Chelsea fans. Striker Diego Costa has returned to training and is expected to available in the Blues’ weekend encounter against Queens Park rangers in the Premier League. The 26 year old Spaniard has been affected by a hamstring problem, while he also suffered viral illness in the past week. Costa has thus missed Chelsea’s last four competitive matches but Mourinho has claimed that he will be available for selection on Saturday. Brazilian midfielder Ramires is also back in training.
Mourinho said, “Without any further complications, Diego Costa and Ramires will be fit to face QPR at the weekend. Normally, Ramires and Diego Costa are back. Normally, we will have only [Loic] Remy as an injured player and [Cesar] Azpilicueta suspended.”
Here is a video of the duo entering Chelsea’s training ground this morning.
Costa’s retrun will come as a welcome boost for the Stamford Bridge outfit. The former Atletico Madrid star has scored nine goals in seven Premier League matches since switching loyalties in the summer.
