Jose Mourinho has confirmed Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas are fit for Chelsea’s Premier League match with West Brom.
Mourinho explained Costa had “totally recovered” from his hamstring issue, and revealed he is “hopeful” about Fabregas, who trained on Friday, and a final decision will be taken ahead of Saturday’s fixture at Stamford Bridge.
Costa scored Chelsea’s winner against Liverpool at Anfield last time out but was excused from international duty with Spain as he manages persistent hamstring and groin problems.
Fabregas, meanwhile, also played against the Reds despite Mourinho afterwards revealing he had been carrying a thigh injury, and the playmaker was subsequently deemed unfit to be included in Vicente del Bosque’s squad.
Mourinho also revealed that Andre Schurrle has fully recovered and that while Ramires is “not in a very good condition”, he is improving and available for selection against West Brom.
