Wheeeeeeee. Although Chelsea's strikers have more than held down the fort in Diego Costa's absence -- four goals in four games from Loïc Rémy and Didier Drogba's not bad at all -- Blues fans were waiting on bated breath for the main man to return. Which happens tomorrow against Queens Park Rangers:
Mourinho reports that Loic Remy and Mikel are unavailable for Saturday's game, but Diego Costa is available. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) October 31, 2014
It's unfortunate to hear that Rémy is still out, but with all respect to him, if we had to choose between him and Costa to be unavailable for this game I don't think anyone would go for the Frenchman. Costa has been hugely influential in Chelsea's success so far this season, and it's very exciting that he's back.
He is, however, not 100 percent fit:
Mourinho says Diego Costa needs to be under special care and the club will do that. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) October 31, 2014
The last time Mourinho said this, of course, it was widely dismissed as mind games. Now that we've had to do without Costa for four matches, however, maybe he'll be taken a little more seriously by the Spain setup? [laugh track]
