Diego Costa missed yesterday’s clash at Wembley for a minor injury.
José Mourinho revealed in his press conference on Friday that all the players were fit, including Cahill and Diego Costa, who felt something on his hamstring in the friendly game against Barcelona.
Anyway, yesterday Mourinho revealed that Diego Costa stated he was not feeling good after the last training on Saturday, that’s why he was out of the squad roaster before the game.
When asked about this, Chelsea captain John Terry replied:
“You will have to ask the manager. He’s looked good in training and everything, so whether it was just a precaution, I don’t know.
“He’s a top player so he’s going to be missed in all teams.
“But it was a chance for Loic to stamp his authority in the side and for Falcao to come on in the second half.
“It’s down to those boys to fight for their place. We have three great strikers and they will all be fighting.
Speaking about the general form of the squad before the Premier League start, Terry said:
“Yes it’s looking good. We have another game on Wednesday, which will give a few other players and the late arrivals a chance to get a few more minutes under their belt. The most important thing is the Swansea game and the three points.
“We have experience in the squad, we have the character. It’s going to be even tougher this year. We go again and prepare ourselves for Swansea”.
