Chelsea will host Hull City next Sunday at Stamford Bridge, and journalists at the post match press conference of the Leicester game were keen to know if Diego Costa will play against Hull City.
Conte refused to give much regarding Costa, but when pressed on whether Costa still has a chance to play at Chelsea again, Conte replied: “Why not?”
Conte also said he does not know the extent of Costa’s back injury.
“I don’t know,” he said. “It’s always difficult because the pain I don’t have, his pain. It’s important to understand when he recovers. We’ll see next week about this.”
