Diego Costa will be fit for Chelsea’s crucial match against Liverpool on Saturday after sustaining an injury to his ribs in Chelsea’s League Cup exit to Stoke City on Tuesday, according to reports.
In what will be of immense relief to Chelsea fans, Diego Costa is likely to recover from the knock he suffered at the hands of Stoke City’s Ryan Shawcross and play in the game against Jurgen Klopp’s side which some have suggested could be Jose Mourinho’s last as Chelsea boss should the Blues lose.
Costa was taken to hospital after being substituted in the 32nd minute and Mourinho claimed afterwards that he didn’t know if the Spain forward would be able to play against Liverpool. Costa. however, has opted to play through the pain barrier in order to help Chelsea turn their currently dreadful season around.
