Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been passed fit to play at Everton on Saturday, Press Association Sport understands.

The 25-year-old has been quick to make his mark with the west Londoners since arriving from Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Costa has netted both of Chelsea's matches this season but looked set to miss this weekend's trip to Merseyside with a minor muscular injury.

The issue forced him to miss training for the last two days, with manager Jose Mourinho admitting on the eve of the match the Spain frontman was a "big doubt".

However, Press Association Sport understands Costa came through training on Friday afternoon unscathed and will travel with his team-mates to Goodison Park.
