Jose Mourinho is hoping to have Diego Costa and Ramires back available for selection for Chelsea’s clash with Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The pair both missed Tuesday night’s 2-1 League Cup fourth-round win over Shrewsbury Town due to injury.

Costa has been struggling with a hamstring injury and has also been suffering from a virus, while Ramires has been sidelined with a muscular problem.

But the Chelsea boss is expecting the pair to be fit and ready for QPR’s trip to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Mourinho said: “Normally Ramires and Diego Costa are back. Normally we will have only [Loic] Remy as an injured player and [Cesar] Azpilicueta suspended.

“If players that played 90 minutes two days ago were fantastic, I expect people that have not been playing a lot to raise their level and create problems for me.

“I love problems of choice, but it’s easy to choose my team for Saturday.”
