Chelsea striker Diego Costa was winding up social media this evening during the Blues League Cup semi-final clash with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.
The Spanish international was part of a number of scraps throughout the game, as he appeared to stamp on Emre Can in the first-half, did the same to Martin Skrtel in the second period and then went toe-to-toe with Steven Gerrard in the first period of extra-time.
It’s not the first time the former Atletico Madrid man has been surrounded by controversy and I’m willing to bet that it’s not his last. At the time of writing, the game isn’t even over yet- so there could still be more to add to the story.
Diego Costa could probably take on the Crazy Gang by himself and win.

Diego Costa is so good at that sort of thing he manages to get away with it with the fourth official standing three yards away

Hmm, kind of feeling like hitting Diego Costa in the face with a brick. Hmm.

Diego Costa should be done for assault for his stamps on Can and Skrtel #LFC

Diego Costa is the first to run away when the other guy actually looks interested in fighting him

Regardless of his ability, Diego Costa is a horrible footballer.
