Costa relishing Hazard partnership at Chelsea

Alonso told Chelsea magazine: "I think there is a great team here".

Costa and his title chasing Chelsea side take on Mourinho's Manchester United this weekend, and a victory could simultaneously take them one giant step closer to the title while ending United's hopes of a top four finish.

Chelsea ended United's FA Cup defence in March with a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge, which saw Ander Herrera sent off for two bookable challenges on the Belgian, who was fouled six times in the match, at least three times more than any player.

The striker, along with team-mates Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas, were accused of downing tools by sections of the press and Chelsea support as they slumped to nine defeats in the first 16 games of the 2015-16 campaign, a claim denied by the players.

However, there are three other clubs in China also aware of the possibility of securing the now out-of-form striker and have the financial clout to complete a move.

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba recently said Lukaku still has a point to prove at "the house he knows", but Conte was keen to play down talk of a possible move for the powerful forward.

"He helped me a lot and then what happened is that the following season didn't go well, these things that happen, but the truth is that Mourinho helped me a lot to improve as a player". It's not right. They deserve the best because they are having a good season, but I think all my players are having a great season. "I want to see who is the victor".

The 26-year-old Belgian winger has been in terrific form this season, and his display in Chelsea's 4-0 win over the Red Devils in the reverse fixture proved how unsafe he is for the Blues.

'I wanted to come to Chelsea because of Mourinho.
