Chelsea Interim Manager Guus Hiddink is confident Diego Costa will be fit enough to feature against Newcastle after breaking his nose in training. The Spain striker was injured during training and will have to ewar a mask.

Guus Hiddink, Chelsea Interim Manager:
(on injuries)
“Not much. The only thing is that yesterday in training Diego (Costa) got in a duel in training, got his nose broken. (reporter: Oscar?). I like to hide this. No it was not Oscar, do you have other choices? No it was one of the youngsters of the academy, which we like to participate in our games. It was not this tough duel but it was…he put his nose into the back of the head in a duel. He was very unlucky and his nose was a little bit broken. He will return today because today is the day they put on a mask. They try and give him a mask as well. So we are now a team with a lot of masks. Like a ‘Zorro team’ you know. Everyone comes here, Azpi (Cesar Azpilicueta), (Nemanja) Matic and now Diego. Today he will come back and do some light training in the afternoon because he must also have the experience of how he is dealing with the form and the fitting of the mask.”

Guus Hiddink, Chelsea Interim Manager:
(on Newcastle)
“Not totally because we take this game very seriously because we are heading and want to head up into the table and we take Newcastle very seriously.

Guus Hiddink, Chelsea Interim Manager:
(on ticket prices)
“Sometimes when you see a TV broadcast of a game in which the stands are half-full or…that is awful to see. So the public is so important. If you have grown up in the club – or in the region – and you love the club. Yeah, we must do everything to facilitate the people in the stands.”
