Jose Mourinho gives Diego Costa injury update

Jose Mourinho addressed the media ahead of Chelsea's clash with Swansea City tomorrow, and gave an update on the fitness of Diego Costa.

Jose Mourinho has said that Diego Costa has a chance of facing Swansea City tomorrow afternoon at Stamford Bridge.

The striker returned from international duty with Spain with a hamstring injury but the Blues boss is optimistic he can face the only other side in the division who has a 100% record after three games.

Costa has been key to Chelsea's three wins from their opening Premier League games scoring four goals in the process.

Mourinho told reports at his press conference ahead of the game: "Diego came back injured but that was last Saturday so he had one week to work hard with the medical department. He has a chance to play tomorrow, we have a training session to confirm his condition and to make a final decision."

Should Costa be unable to play a part in tomorrow's meeting against the Swans, Didier Drogba and summer signing Loic Remy will be in contention to start in his absence.

The Chelsea manager also added that he was pleased with the business that club had undertaken during the transfer window, as well as securing Thibaut Courtois' future at the club on a five-year deal after he returned from a lengthy loan spell at Atletico Madrid.
