Diego Costa returns to Chelsea team to face Hull City


Diego Costa returned to Chelsea’s starting XI for the Premier League leaders’ home game against Hull City on Sunday.

The Brazil-born Spain international, Chelsea’s top scorer with 14 goals, missed last weekend’s 3-0 win at Leicester City due to a back complaint.

But he was reported to have had a furious training-ground row with fitness coach Julio Tous and was also thought to be the subject of a mega-money offer from Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian.

Costa replaced Willian in the only change made by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Conte said: “I try to make the best decision for the team – and for this reason I decided to start him.”

Asked if Costa was in the right frame of mind to play, Conte added: “If I decide to pick a player in my starting eleven for sure he must have a great mentality.”

Hull manager Marco Silva handed a debut to Norwegian right-back Omar Elabdellaoui and a full debut to Brazilian midfielder Evandro.
