Reports are out claiming that Chelsea striker Diego Costa is planning to be fully fit for his side’s potentially crucial title clash with Arsenal later this month.
The Brazilian-born Spanish international striker succumbed to another hamstring injury in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Stoke City and is likely to miss at least two weeks.
The Premier League leaders meet relegation battlers QPR at Loftus Road on Sunday before a vital meeting with third-placed Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on April 18.
But the Daily Mail claims that Costa will not be back in action until Jose Mourinho’s side make the short trip across London to take on the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium on April 26.
Chelsea are currently seven points ahead of Arsenal with a game in hand while Costa is the joint-leader in the Premier League’s Golden Boot race on 19 goals alongside Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
