25-Year-Old Forward Chelsea Premier
Diego Costa Contract Information:
Transferred from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea FC in July 2014.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho confirmed Friday that Costa will start Sunday against Manchester City. "Diego is not in the best condition but he will start the game," Mourinho said. "He plays this game, he won't play against Bolton (in the Capital One Cup) and he plays against Aston Villa."
Mourinho said earlier this week that Costa is unable to start multiple matches in a single week due to a muscle concern, which is why he was used as a late sub in Chelsea's Champions League match against Schalke 04 on Wednesday. However, he looks to be good to go for Sunday's huge match, though he could be limited to fewer than 90 minutes.
