Hopefully, let’s see what can be done for next weekend. He has to be careful,’ said the Dutchman. 5 2. Diego Costa – The Brazil-born striker was a shock exclusion from Chelsea’s squad at the weekend, with Bertrand Traore taking his place, and Hiddink later revealed that the forward was struggling with a minor tendon problem. However, his absence was taken as a precaution and he is expected to return to the line up this week. Hiddink said, ‘He had a little problem on the tendon, so that’s why I was bit cautious not to take the risk of worsening the situation. I think he will be OK on Wednesday.’ 5 4. Kenedy – The Brazilian suffered a ‘small problem’ in the win over Norwich City, consequently missing the 1-1 draw with Stoke City at the weekend. A report on Chelsea’s website stated that ‘Hiddink is expecting the Brazilian to train and will assess him on Tuesday at the latest.’ He is therefore in with a chance of featuring against PSG. 5.

The Colombian has resumed full training after months out with a thigh injury.
