Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho hopes having injury-hit Diego Costa fit will give them a boost against West Brom this afternoon.
It's the first of eight games in 24 days for the Blues - a prospect Mourinho has referred to as a 'beautiful' period - and will be a testing time for Premier League new boy Costa. The 26 year old missed Spain's international fixtures over the past fortnight battling hamstring and groin issues.
Mourinho said: "I always think that the Christmas period for players doing it for the first time in their career is more difficult. The English players, or those who have been here for many, many years, are more physically and, especially, more mentally adapted and prepared to cope with that incredible marathon of football we have to face."
