Diego Costa is injury free claims Jose Mourinho

Published Add your comment

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has insisted that star man Diego Costa is injury free ahead of tomorrow's Community Shield clash with London rivals Arsenal. 

As reported by the Mirror, the Blues chief has insisted that he's not worried about his forward despite the player's injury problems last time round. 

After a brilliant opening half to the Premier League season in 2014/15, the Brazilian-born Spanish international endured a tricky final couple of months in west London as he failed to maintain his fitness.

Mourinho, though, is seemingly confident that the front man's problems are behind him, as he goes in search of success once again this season. 

“We have three top strikers. If one is injured we have two. No concerns, no protections. It’s a position where we’re very strong,” said Mourinho.

“I believe Costa is injury free, and I’m not worried about it. I go match after match. Fantastic group of strikers. So no problem.

Costa is key

Despite Mourinho claiming that he has a fantastic group of strikers at his disposal, there's no denying the fact that Costa is very much the club's main man in attack. 

The former Atletico ace, when at his best, is without a doubt one of the top forwards in Europe, so it's crucial for the club that he maintains his fitness all season long.

Ultimately, with Costa firing, Chelsea stand a great chance of securing success on both the domestic and European scene. He really is that important to them.
