Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho expects Diego Costa to return for the final four matches of the season as the Spaniard begins recovery from a hamstring injury.

The striker, 26, suffered a recurrence of a hamstring problem during last Saturday’s 2-1 win over Stoke City and was substituted early in the second half at Stamford Bridge.

He is unavailable for Sunday’s trip to Queens Park Rangers and Mourinho says his rehabilitation could lapse into next month.

“Diego will certainly be back,” Mourinho said in his news conference a Chelsea’s Cobham training facility on Friday.

“We have eight matches to play, and if he plays four it’s normal. If he plays three it’s a little bit below what I’m expecting, and if he plays five it’s a little bit more that what I am expecting. I am thinking four matches.”

The Portuguese also disclosed that Cesc Gabregas will wear a protective mask at Loftus Road due to a facial injury he picked up last weekend, and that John Mikel Obi is back in the squad.

“Everybody else is fine and ready. Mikel is ready; Fabregas with a mask is ready too. No problems.”

The Blues are top of the Premier League standings, seven points ahead of Arsenal in second place with a game in hand.
