Chelsea deliver updates on Hazard and Costa ahead of Arsenal trip

Guus Hiddink had some good news regarding Eden Hazard and Diego Costa ahead of Chelsea's trip to Arsenal

Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have both been passed fit for Chelsea’s Premier League showdown at Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Hazard has been sidelined with a groin injury picked up early on during the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park earlier this month, while Costa was substituted in last weekend’s draw with Everton due to a leg problem.

Guus Hiddink faced the media at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground on Friday lunchtime and confirmed that the duo are both available for selection for Sunday’s trip to The Emirates.

Hazard has struggled to find consistent form this season and is yet to score in the Premier League.

Chelsea confirmed the injury update via their official Twitter account on Friday:

Defending champions Chelsea head into Sunday’s game in 14th place in the Premier League table and 19 points behind leaders Arsenal.

The Blues were 2-0 winners over the Gunners at Stamford Bridge back in September.
