Has Diego Costa broken his relationship with Jose? The Chelsea and Tottenham game ended drab but not the touchline.
Just before the match, Mourinho insisted before the crunch game that that he wanted more from the Spanish striker who has only scored three Premier League goals in 12 appearances so far this season.
True to his word, Mourinho did not give Costa the chance to live up to the challenge and was resigned to the substitute’s bench, with Kenedy preferred as a late addition as the game looked like destined for scoreless.
The snub apparently didn't go well with Costa who had already skipped the pre-game warm ups in an opened protest against Mourinho's decision.
With 82 minutes of the game gone, Costa was ordered to start his warm ups, but ten minutes later Mourinho pulled him back and opted to send Kenedy on.
For now the main talking points will undoubtedly be about the Blues dressing room and whether Jose Mourinho has irrevocably damaged his relationship with Diego Costa.
