Jose Mourinho gives injury update, rubbishes Petr Cech exit rumours


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says striker Diego Costa and midfielder Cesc Fabregas should both feature on Saturday against West Bromwich Albion.

The Blues have a four-point lead at the top of the English Premier League and the Portuguese expects his side to take all three points against Alan Irvine's side.

"I expect to win, but I expect a very very difficult match," Mourinho said during Friday's press conference.

"They have a good team, they can give us a very difficult match. They know that they can get a result against us, because they got it in the past.

"Nathan Ake is out for a few weeks. John Mikel I don't know, he only got back this morning.

"Diego Costa is totally recovered, the same with Schurrle.

"Fabregas hopefully will be fit, Ramires can play, his injury is improving, but he is not in very good condition.

"[The busy Christmas period] is a different phase, but it doesn't mean that we can train more.

"I know it's very difficult for me, and especially for the players and their bodies, but I love it. I look forward to the marathon Christmas period."

Asked about rumours saying Petr Cech is ready to leave the club during the January transfer window, Mourinho said: "On which Mickey Mouse website? On which Mickey Mouse blog?

"Some websites don't even know where they get their stories. I have zero proposals for Petr Cech.

"Petr has a contract for two more years, he's a fantastic professional. Not once has he knocked on my door to inform me about his desire to accept some proposal."
