Diego Costa is back and will be available to play against Hull City, and Antonio Conte revealed at his pre-match press conference that Costa was fit to start against Hull City, after claiming he had been struggling with a back problem.
On Costa’s return, Spanish defender Cesar Azpilicueta revealed that he’s happy to have Costa back. He told BBC in an interview (as reported by Metro): “Obviously it’s good to have him back.
“[But] when he was suspended against Bournemouth we were able to win.
“The strength of the squad is really important, you cannot play with the same players all season.”
