Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho reveals that no decision has been made regarding the fitness of Diego Costa and Pedro ahead of the club's game with Liverpool.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is "hopeful" that both Diego Costa and Pedro will be fit for his side's game with Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.

Pedro has missed Chelsea's last three matches, while Costa sustained a rib injury during the Blues' League Cup defeat to Stoke City on Tuesday night.

However, while ruling out Branislav Ivanovic for a further week, Mourinho has claimed that the attacking duo could be involved at Stamford Bridge.

The 52-year-old told reporters: "Courtois and Ivanovic are out and Pedro and Diego we will wait. The others are fine.

"Pedro and Diego I am hopeful, if not I don't take them to the hotel. It is always difficult for me to find the percentage (how fit) it is more about the confidence of the players."

Chelsea go into the fixture in 15th position in the Premier League table.

The injured Diego Costa of Chelsea looks on prior to leaving the pitch due to injury during the Capital One Cup fourth round match between Stoke City and Chelsea at the Britannia Stadium on October 27, 2015 in Stoke on Trent, England.
