Guus Hiddink: Injury update on Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Loic Remy ahead of tonight's match


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says striker Diego Costa is fit to start tonight's game at Stamford Bridge against West Bromwich Albion.

The Spain international was a major doubt after suffering an injury in the last part of the game against Scunthorpe United but has recovered in time to face Tony Pulis' men.

Attacking midfielder Eden Hazard is still ruled out and is expected to be back to full training at the end of next week.

"[Diego] Costa is okay," Hiddink said.

"The day after the game he was eager to go out on to the pitch, so I was amazed, but he was recovering very actively so he is okay.

"I think [he will be in the starting line-up tonight].

"[Loic] Remy is joining the group, he'd been training individually but in the last two days he practiced with us.

"[Eden] Hazard was on the pitch today with the physios and trainers, he's doing better and better but is still not available.

"He's not been with the group. We want to have him fit. It's better a little late than one hour too early.

"For me it's about freshness.

"If the mind is fresh and players are eager to step on to the training ground and enjoy training, it's a signal of freshness.

"He won all these trophies but this season it's been mostly physical problems. He has to enjoy it and get rid of his physical problems, automatically he will then come into his normal shape of play.

"It's an individual approach; one needs a lash, another needs an arm [around the shoulder], another needs to be pinched a bit. It's different but we've given him the time to come back."
