Chelsea media round-up: Mourinho comments on problem he sees in Costa

Mourinho & Bench - Chelsea

A round up of news stories this morning related to Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been quoted by the Daily Mirror admitting he fears for Diego Costa.

The Spanish forward came off during the slender win over Hull City with an all too familiar hamstring problem.

It’s a reoccurrence of the problem he has been playing with since the Champions League final last season with Atletico Madrid.

“He has this problem since he had the injury and tried to play in the Champions League final with Atletico Madrid last season, was injured and again he has this fragility,” said the boss.

Mourinho has also been quoted by the same source suggesting that the title race should now be over.

The Blues hold a healthy advantage at the top of the table and should be able to protect their position over the number of games left.

However, he’s admitted that there is an air of unpredictability surrounding the division as things stand.

“The title race should be over. In normal conditions should have eight ten twelve more points but it’s unpredictable,” he said.

The Metro has reported that Chelsea are closer to the signing of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

The big Frenchman could be available this summer after a Juventus official admitted that his current side were not all about individuals.

He will set the Blues back around £70 million according to the paper’s report.
