Fabregas speaks on Diego Costa's return to Atletico Madrid

Cesc Fabregas has paid tribute to Diego Costa ahead of his move from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid, saying the striker "deserves to be on the field".

Spanish clubs have won four of the last five UEFA Champions Leagues.

But whether Luiz has the mental capacity to manage Griezmann's constant threat is another matter - he certainly can't afford one of his infamous lapses in concentration on Wednesday night.

Chelsea after an indistinct start to the season, scored an amazing form, without losing in 7 games in a row, winning 6 fights and one match, finishing in a draw. I'm going to give it all for the team, as I always try to do.

Costa will be free to mingle around the tunnel area as he pleases and will then be sat in the stands, although he is not expected to be paraded on the pitch as Atletico boss Diego Simeone wants to focus on the game.

Atletico have also confirmed that Costa will wear the number 18. Conte now suggests he is ready to start the forward again in what is set to be Chelsea's toughest examination of the Champions League group stage away to Diego Simeone's side. He doesn't look sharp yet and while his touch is there I don't see that drive to produce those slalom runs which make him really dangerous.

Eden Hazard has made only one start for Chelsea this season. It was short in the Europa League and the Euros.

Speaking to Deportes Cuatro TV, Saul said Costa's arrival from Chelsea would ensure that Atletico's other forwards, who also include Vitolo, Angel Correa, Kevin Gameiro and Fernando Torres, remained on their toes. "He is totally fit and in contention for tomorrow's game".

"We know he is a top striker". He might not have been the greatest player but he was strong and aggressive.

Antonio Conte called on Premier League champions Chelsea to take the step up and prove they can be contenders in the Champions League when they face a daunting trip to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.

"It will be a very nice evening for me, but I am very hungry and focused to get three points there".

In his post, the Spanish international made it very clear he regretted how he left Stamford Bridge after three years in west London.

Intrigue will surround Eden Hazard's involvement in these crunch clashes.
