Fabregas speaks on Diego Costa's return to Atletico Madrid

Our manager was talking shortly after touching down in Madrid 24 hours before his side take on Atletico, a club which has not lost at home in 11 European games against English opponents. "'Chelsea is in the fight for the title and it's the thing that we want".

The game plan will almost certainly be for Chelsea to sit deep and play on the counter-attack against Pep Guardiola's free-flowing side meaning that Azpilicueta will be preoccupied with executing his day job as well as possible.

Minutes the Belgium has played in four substitute appearance, three in the Premier League and one in the Champions League.

And former Chelsea winger Nevin believes that the stage is set for a thrilling encounter between the two sides in Spain on Wednesday night.

"We thank Diego for his efforts and wish him well in his future career", Chelsea said in a statement. "Every time I had the ball, I knew his next move, and he knew that I was going to give it to him, virtually every pass was a goal", he added.

Atletico failed to push through the move before the transfer deadline, safe in the knowledge that Costa would not be able to play for them until January due to the club's transfer ban.

"This Chelsea team is very different from the team that we faced in 2014", Atletico coach Diego Simeone said.

"I don't miss anything from Courtois with Oblak".

"After a bad injury and surgery you need time".

He did, however, start against Nottingham Forest last week, as the Premier League champions triumphed 5-1. "It's a very tough opponent". At the time, Chelsea said they had no intention of selling him.

"People were paying a lot of attention to if he was a bad player on the pitch instead of looking at his quality". When Hazard returns to the starting XI and sees Tiemoue Bakayoko in central midfield, and possibly Andreas Christensen or David Luiz as a true defensive central midfielder in a 3-5-2, Hazard will be even more free to roam as a second striker or true No. 10.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone expects to have his hands full in attempting to quell a red-hot Alvaro Morata when Chelsea visit the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday.

The striker was deemed surplus to requirement by Conte and has been sold to Atletico for a fee of £57 million. Click any of these buttons below!

"I'm very happy to return home", Costa said in a statement on Atletico's official website.
