first_img Chelsea midfielder Oscar is treated after being clattered by Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina Chelsea have received a boost for their Premier League title run in with news midfielder Oscar returned from hospital with no serious injuries following Sunday’s draw at Arsenal.The Brazilian international was pulled off at half time and immediately rushed to hospital following a heavy collision with Gunners goalkeeper David Ospina.Mourinho said his staff were a “little scared” but the boss confirmed the 23-year-old returned home late Sunday evening and could be cleared in time to train with the team ahead of next Wednesday’s trip to Leicester.Asked how Oscar is, Mourinho said on Monday: “I really don’t know. I know that he’s not in the hospital. He slept at home. He should be arriving [for training].”On whether the player had suffered concussion, he added: “I’m not sure of that. We saw his face swelling and at half-time we don’t want to go for any risks.”The point at Arsenal restored the Blues’ ten point lead at the top of the table and leaves them just two wins away from securing top flight glory.The full Chelsea squad will travel for training at St George’s Park on Monday and Tuesday ahead of Wednesday’s night’s match King Power Stadium.Mourinho is still to determine if Diego Costa will be fit following the hamstring problems which have seen him miss the last four games.“If it was a player without an injury history I would play him, but because he’s a player with a history I have to think about that,” Mourinho said.“We need five or six points. If we can get one or three on Wednesday it would be very good for us, but after Leicester we have still four matches to play. We have to decide.”Mourinho is taking nothing for granted when it comes to the title and knows the Foxes, who have won four straight games, are a threat.“It’s such a difficult league, if we are champions on the last day I am more than happy with that,” he said. 1last_img
