According to Sky Sport, Diego Costa has been taken to hospital with a rib injury suffered in Chelsea’s Capital One Cup match against Stoke.
Chelsea striker Costa was substituted before half-time as he was forced from the field with a rib injury following a challenge by Charlie Adam.
The Spaniard initially returned to the pitch after receiving treatment, but after a few minutes Loic Remy had to substitute him.
During the post-match press conference Jose Mourinho was asked about the reason of Costa’s injury. The Special One answered ironically ” I guess he punched himself”.
