Mourinho delivers latest Chelsea injury update ahead of QPR clash
The Chelsea manager is hoping to have Diego Costa and Ramires back for Saturday's clash with QPR
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.”
