Team News: Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas, Thibaut Courtois start for Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois recovers from injury to start for Chelsea in tonight's final pre-season friendly against Real Sociedad at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho has handed home debuts to three of his summer recruits for tonight's friendly against Real Sociedad.

Thibaut Courtois has recovered from injury to get the nod ahead of Petr Cech, while Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa also start in the Blues' final pre-season run-out before the new campaign gets underway.

Fellow new boy Filipe Luis misses out, however, settling for a place among the substitutes.

Sociedad will be looking to bounce back from their late defeat against Newcastle United last time out and end their tour of England with a positive result.

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Ake, Matic, Fabregas; Ramires, Hazard, Schurrle, Diego Costa

Real Sociedad: Zubikarai, Zaldua, Ansotegi, Inigo Martínez, De la Bella, Markel, Pardo, Granero, Prieto, Canales, Agirretxe
