Chelsea latest: Costa not on the move and Barca don't want Courtois

Thibaut Coutois

All the latest news and gossip from the past 24 hours at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho has asked for a small injury to Luis Suarez.

The Uruguayan has been in fantastic form for Liverpool recently and Chelsea take on The Reds this weekend.

And the Chelsea boss was full of jokes on the matter earlier today:

'Maybe Suarez got a little injury. I'm not asking for a big injury. A little injury to stop him playing for four days.”

Unfortunately he seems to be fully fit.

Chelsea team news now though ahead of the big game. Ramires is suspended for the tie after picking up a fifth yellow card of the season.

Frank Lampard is fit so should feature while Cesar Azpilicueta is expected to return to the starting line-up.

Fernando Torres is expected to start.

Diego Costa is reportedly not interested in a move to Arsenal … or Chelsea this summer.

The Atletico Madrid director of football Jose Luis Caminero is certain that he is going nowhere:

“Right now Costa does not think of leaving, he is contracted to Atletico. He has renewed with us which is important. He has shown that he wants to continue at this club.”

Barcelona are reportedly not looking at Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian youngster has been incredible during his loan spell at Atletico Madrid and has been linked with Barcelona recently.

However Chelsea want Courtois to replace Petr Cech next season so do not want to see him leave - so this will come as good news.
