Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has stated that Chelsea's wantaway striker Diego Costa is ready to play again.

Costa, 28, was left out of last week's win at Leicester after a disagreement with a fitness coach, amid widespread reports of interest from Chinese clubs.

Chelsea said his omission was due to a back injury, and that training alone for two days was part of his recovery.

Speaking during a press conference on Friday, Conte said Costa "is very happy to play with us."

"I don't see any problem," said Conte.

"I heard a lot of speculation about Diego, but now the most important thing is he trained with us this week, he does not have any pain in his back and can play.

"He is an important player for us and we all know this. When he stays in good form he has always played with me."

However, he didn't say if Costa will feature against their next opponent, Hull City.
