Chelsea morning news: Costa 'certain' to start against Arsenal, Terry's tears

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

Chelsea forward Diego Costa has suggested that he will be in the side to face Arsenal this weekend.

Costa has a persistent hamstring problem, which sometimes prevents him from training.

“There are a few niggles that are annoying me, There are days when I do not train so I can prevent problems, but there are other days when I can train. I am certain I will play against Arsenal,” he’s quoted by the Star.

Chelsea skipper John Terry has revealed that he cried when he couldn’t lead the Blues to the Premier League title last season.

Chelsea finished in third place, with Manchester City winning the league and Liverpool ending the season in second.

“I was in tears over the Premier League last year, over throwing that away and not winning it. That's what I play for week in, week out. I'm never scared to show my emotions,” said Terry.

Former Chelsea striker Demba Ba has taken a stab at one of the club’s main rivals; Tottenham Hotspur.

Ba left the Blues for Besiktas and questioned the passion of Spurs fans before their Europa League game.

“I played against Tottenham with Chelsea and West Ham. I am positive our fans will be noisier than their fans,” he said through Besiktas’ Twitter feed.
