Chelsea striker Diego Costa is in contention to return from a seven-match absence when the Premier League champions visit West Brom tonight for their penultimate fixture of the season.
Costa remains the Blues’ top scorer, with 19 goals in 35 appearances, despite a recurring hamstring problem keeping the Spain international out of the team since a 3-2 win at Hull in March.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has pledged to blood youngsters in the final games and tonight could be the turn of England Under-19 forward Izzy Brown, who left the Hawthorns for west London in 2013. Brown, 18, is yet to make his senior debut for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
