Chelsea latest: Jose delivers Costa news, Drogba, Hazard on Diego

All the latest Chelsea news including Jose Mourinho's thoughts on Didier Drogba, Diego Costa starting against Queens Park Rangers and Eden Hazard.

Jose Mourinho has delivered good news to Chelsea fans regarding the availability of prolific summer signing Diego Costa.

Earlier today, the Portuguese coach explained that the Spaniard - who has been absent of late due to hamstring problems - would feature in the West London derby versus Queens Park Rangers, tomorrow, but his fitness would be "handled with caution."

Powerful Ivorian Didier Drogba has deputised extremely well and Mourinho is delighted with the reliability that each of his three main striking options - Costa, Drogba and Loic Remy - represents.

It is a stark contrast to the inefficient options from last year, perhaps (Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o).

Having three elite-level players vie for one position is a "fantastic problem", according to Mourinho, who told BBC: "We have three very good strikers in the squad."

And finally, Eden Hazard has talked-up the understanding he built up straight away with summer signings Francesc Fabregas and Costa.

"We didn’t need to train two years together, just one week was enough," said Hazard.  "They know when I move and I know when Costa and Fabregas move. It’s a pleasure to play with them.

"I don’t know how much better this team can get — we will see. Now we are first in the table and I hope we can stay there until the end of the season. I hope we can win a lot of trophies this season, one, two or three. Why not?”
