In the 75th minute, Costa tried to make a move and came up injured after clashing with Chelsea centre-back, Branislov Ivanovic three minutes earlier.

The striker tried to press on but he wasn’t able and was attended to be the club’s medical staff.

This was the same leg he injured when he wrapped his leg around the goalpost on 19th April against Getafe, causing a large gash.

However, Costa assured his teammates that it was just a knock and he will be fine.
