Diego Costa has taken to social media to drop a big hint that he is set to return to action for Chelsea when the Blues take on Hull City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Blues striker was left out of the squad for Saturday’s 3-0 win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium amid reports that he had a bust-up with coaching staff at the club’s training ground.

However, Costa was training with the Chelsea first team this week and the Spanish striker appeared to indicate that he is ready to return to action ahead of this weekend’s clash at Stamford Bridge.

Costa posted the picture above of himself in Chelsea training and wrote the caption: “⚽️👊🏽💪🏽💙!!!”
