Diego Costa's fitness in question for opener vs. Swansea - Jose Mourinho

Ahead of the season opening Community Shield against Arsenal, Chelsea striker Diego Costa is targetting success in this season's UEFA Champions League.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says he doesn't know if his striker Diego Costa will be fit to start in next Saturday's Premier League opener against Swansea at Stamford Bridge.

Costa missed Sunday's Community Shield at Wembley because of his recurring hamstring issues, with the Premier League champions missing the input of their leading scorer from last season in a 1-0 defeat against FA Cup winners Arsenal.

Garry Monk, Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew: Is mid-table an achievement?

All three managers will have similar ideas of success this season.

If there is a fine line between success and failure, a manager in search of a stress-free life might be looking for the elusive area between underachievement and overachievement. Underperform and his position comes into question. Exceed expectations and he is challenged to do even better. Even repeating his earlier exploits can bring suggestions his side have not progressed.

Such are the problems that confront Garry Monk, Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew this season. They have set the bar high. In their...
