Jose Mourinho on the United game, says Diego Costa could feature


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says the Blues will be eager to take all three points from Old Trafford when they face Manchester United on Sunday.

With only one game drawn so far, Chelsea lead the table on 22 points and will be determined to show the same form showed in mid-week against Maribor in the Champions League.

"Try for the best result as always," Mourinho told reporters.

"We try to play as good as we are playing. Respecting an opponent that is one of the best and most difficult in the Premier League.

"We are confident we are in a good moment and situation. There is no reason for us to change our feeling.

"We play against a big team yes, but we are going there to get the points and get the best possible result."

Striker Diego Costa was yesterday released from hospital following treatment for an illness and the manager says he could feature against the Red Devils.

"He [Diego Costa] has a chance. He has a little chance," Mourinho said.

"Yes [he was hospitalised]. Everything has happened to him. He was obviously injured [hamstring] and he had to go to the hospital with a viral situation that we didn't manage to resolve without being in hospital over one night.

"I think it happened before Maribor. But he wouldn't have been ready from his injury.

"The problem is being ill didn't help his recovery. All the treatment he did was the medical staff going to his house because we didn't want to bring him here.

"[Loic] Remy no chance. Diego has a little chance the same as Mikel and Ramires. The only one I can confirm has no chance is Remy.

"I would say for two or three weeks, Remy is out."
