Chelsea supporters will see Diego Costa back in action at Stamford Bridge after serving the ban. This will be a huge boost for Chelsea as they host Manchester City over the weekend.
The Blues’ top scorer for the season is undoubtedly a man they can rely on when it comes to goal scoring. Costa definitely makes his presence felt in each and every game; he is a constant nuisance for the opposing defenders.
Hiddink spoke in his pre-match conference regarding the spirit and dedication Diego Costa has shown. While sidelined because of the ban, Costa continued training and even trained individually while the team had to make trips for away games.
“Normally when a player is out that long period they have a tendency to take a break, but he didn’t,” appreciated Hiddink. He has been working at Cobham with staff as he is very eager to return to action, added the Boss.
On paper, Chelsea has very little to play for this season. The Blues are not in contention for any title this season, but to win against Manchester City will require Chelsea to have their big guns firing up ahead. The return of Costa, a sure-shot finisher, will lift the spirit of the team in many ways.
