Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly confident that he will have all his strikers fit for their trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal on 26 April.

According to the Mirror, the Blues manager is hoping that Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Didier Drogba will return to training ahead of the top of the table clash.

It is believed that the Portuguese manager gave his team an extra two days off as part of their preparation and the team is said to have resumed training on Tuesday for their weekend trip across London.

Costa missed the clash against Manchester United last week, but the former Real Madrid manager had hinted that the striker is recovering well and could be ready for Sunday's encounter.

The Spanish forward has been having recurring hamstring problems over the course of the season, and was earlier thought to have suffered a more severe injury, with the manager ruling him out until May.

Loic Remy, who has been an able deputy for the former Atletico Madrid star, has also missed the last couple of games due to an injury, and is hoping to prove his fitness to the manager ahead of the weekend.

The Frenchman has scored crucial goals for Chelsea this season and the manager will be keen to see him reprise his role on the bench, adding more depth to their forward line.

Drogba was the latest casualty, after the Ivory Coast striker pulled out of a charity match with an ankle injury, but Mourinho seems confident that he too will be available for the crucial game against the second placed side.

The Portuguese boss is aware that a win over Arsenal and a similar result against Leicester the following weekend will see Chelsea crowned champions of England, but the Gunners will hope to keep the race going, as a win for them will cut the gap to seven points with four games remaining.
