Eden Hazard fit to return for Chelsea

Diego Costa also fit

Chelsea attacking duo Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are in contention to play some part in Sunday’s game against Arsenal.

Hazard has missed the last three matches with a groin injury suffered at Crystal Palace, while Costa sustained a bruised shin in last Saturday’s draw with Newcastle.

"The last two days he (Hazard) was in full commitment with first-team training, so he is available,” said Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink.

"We have to be careful, because he has fallen into some injuries recently.

"I'm not sure whether he can play a full 90 minutes yet. We have to consider whether it's best (for him) to start or to come in."

Costa had scans immediately after the draw with Everton, with the results showing no fracture and just bruising, allowing the striker return to training on Thursday.

“He (Costa) was in yesterday. He was in today. So he will be available as well,” added Hiddink.
