Diego Costa will undergo further tests today as Jose Mourinho confirmed the Spanish international striker suffered a hamstring problem during yesterdays’ win at the KC Stadium.
Chelsea started the game against Hull in emphatic style opening up a quick two goal lead but what looked like the beginning of a champions-elect rout was turned on its head as Steve Bruce’s men fought back with two quick-fire strikes of their own. Ahmed Elmohamady provided a smart finish for the first before an uncharacteristic Courtois error gifted Hernandez an equaliser and the match remained tied at [2-2] going into its final phase. However as Mourinho was making efforts for one final Chelsea push Diego Costa pulled up short following a recurrence of his hamstring injury and instead of Loic Remy partnering the Blues’ top-scorer the Frenchman was introduced as his replacement [although in the end the outcome was the same]. Remy grabbed a goal within two minutes and Chelsea took another step closer to the title. Mar 23 - 10:10 AM
