Mourinho: Costa "will start" City match

Finally a match in which Diego Costa's presence isn't in some doubt. In his press conference this afternoon, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the striker -- who's scored an incredible seven goals in four Premier League games -- will be starting our key game against Manchester City on Sunday.

While I would prefer that Costa be in the best condition, having him fit to play at all* is good news for our chances of winning at the Etihad. And that everyone else is available for selection is good news  too -- no constraints in squad selection this time around. Here's hoping Costa can help fire us to three big points this weekend!

*Yes, if Mourinho had said there was a doubt he'd certainly be set to score another hattrick.
