It was a nervous Diego Costa the one we saw last night at the final whistle: he clashed with West Brom’s goalkeeper Boaz Myhill in the middle of the pitch and the two had to be separated by Chelsea captain John Terry and full back Cesar Azpilicueta.
During the game he also quarreled with Claudio Yacob and Jonas Olsson.
The Spaniard left the pitch so furious that he had to punch the wall in the dressing room tunnel to relieve his tension: the result was a big hole.
When manager Guus Hiddink was asked about this in the press conference straight after he joked:
“A hole in the tunnel wall? We can repair that easily, it’s not a problem.
“He’s an emotional guy and I like that very much. If you have to push players it’s difficult to survive in the Premier League, but if you have to control them it’s much better.”
