The Blues boss remains without main striker Diego Costa for the final game of his three-match suspension against Everton today.

Costa was banned for stamping on Liverpool's Emre Can and has questioned why other players do not get the same treatment as his talisman.

"I need a little bit more time to forget why my player was suspended, to understand why some people are punished and others aren't. I need a little bit more time to process that. I was with lots of attention this weekend," he said.

"The same people (the FA) who suspended my player didn't want to suspend a player this weekend, and a player could have been suspended this weekend and he wasn't."
