Chelsea – Is Diego Costa crossing the line?

Last night’s heated affair between Chelsea and Liverpool saw Diego Costa in amongst the thick of the action, and not for the right reasons.

Costa was believed to have stamped out twice on Liverpool players, Emre Can and Martin Skrtel according to Sky Sports pundits, Jamie Redknapp and Thierry Henry.

“You can see clearly that he meant that,” Henry said. “I love the passion, I love the aggression but I think he went too far there.

“I think it was a red but the ref didn’t see it, the linesman didn’t see it and the fourth official didn’t see it.”

“I have to love the passion of the guy and the way he plays but on the two occasions here, especially with Can and Skrtel, he went overboard.”

Meanwhile, Redknapp had his say on the situation, “We all love Diego Costa,” Redknapp told Sky Sports. “He’s a fantastic player. You would have him in your team any day of the week but he steps over the line sometimes.

“You know exactly what you’re doing there. You can hurdle someone’s leg but he’s definitely stamped on Skrtel.”

So, is Diego Costa going too far? Will he be branded with a fine or match suspension?
