Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed playmaker Oscar will travel to Leicester for the Blues' title tilt on Wednesday night.

The Brazilian international suffered a head injury when he collided with Arsenal keeper David Ospina, in Sunday's 0-0 draw.

Oscar appeared to be showing signs of 'fencing response', which is involuntary arm movements that are an indicator of concussion, however it appears that he's in contention for tomorrow night's showdown. 

As reported by Sky Sports, Blues boss Jose Mourinho said: "Oscar left the hospital and stayed at home last night. He should be here today (Monday). Everybody will travel to Leicester."

Costa return

Chelsea will also be hoping striker, Diego Costa, returns after a hamstring injury that has kept him out for three games. The Spanish international has scored 19 goals this season, which saw him inducted into the PFA Team of the Year. Costa looks set to undergo a late fitness test before the match with Leicester.

Impressive Leicester 

The Foxes have been in impressive form recently winning four out of their last five games, which sees them climb out of the relegation zone for the first time since November. In the last meeting between the sides Chelsea won 2-0 with goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa.

The Blues are now just six points away from clinching their first title since 2010. Baring any heroics from Leicester and Crystal Palace, Chelsea could be crowned champions at Stamford Bridge on May 3.
