meant to stamp on Can
Chelsea striker Diego Costa has denied he deliberately stamped on Liverpool's Emre Can but admitted to being no angel on the field.

The Brazilian-born Spain international missed Saturday's top-of-the-table 1-1 draw with Manchester City after serving the first of a three-game ban for the incident during Tuesday's League Cup semi-final, second leg victory at Stamford Bridge.

"As far as what happened on Tuesday, the main thing is when I get home I can go home and I can go to sleep knowing that I've not done anything wrong, because I never meant to do that and it was not on purpose," he told British newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

"And you can clearly see that on the video. But it is a suspension. Obviously I feel sad because I'm not going to be able to help the team, to play. But I have accept it and respect it.

"I'm not saying I'm an angel. I'm no angel. You can see that. But every time I play I will play the same way because that's the way I am. That's what I need to do in order to support my family.

"That's my bread and butter, also that's what I need to do for this club and for the fans of this club, for the supporters and for all the people involved in this club."

The 26-year-old has proved an instant hit since joining from Spanish champions Atletico Madrid last year, scoring 17 league goals to help Chelsea open up a five-point lead after 23 matches in the English Premier League.

He has, though, received heavy criticism for Tuesday's actions, which followed accusations of diving on more than one occasion.

Costa was also involved in a spat with American goalkeeper Tim Howard in August after Everton boss Roberto Martinez accused him of taunting Seamus Coleman following a Chelsea goal.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has accused television pundits of tarnishing his striker's reputation and has shunned talking to the media since the club failed to overturn the violent conduct suspension on Friday.

Costa, who will also miss fixtures at Aston Villa and home to Everton, defended his actions and said he would not change his competitive streak.

"On the pitch I transform myself, I really, really want to win," said Costa, who is named after Argentine World Cup-winning great Diego Maradona.

"You have to see how many times have I injured someone. Never. I've never injured another colleague, another player on purpose. I'm not going to change the way I play because I got banned for a few games now."
Costa's interview about how he will npt change gave me goosebumps. He is so right about so many things

Link please?
We have to give José and our players credit for a very professional performance yesterday. The game was pretty even in the first half with Chelsea 49% ppossession and 2 shots on target while City had 51% possession and 3 shots on target. The secondvhalf stats can be misleading because most people will not take into account the fact that having played 120minutes of high intensity football on Tuesday it was only logical for Chelsea to sot back and hence allow City more possession. Also looking at both benches Chelsea hardky had any game changer and for all of City's possession in the second half we hardly looked like conceding.

I think it is erroneous to conclude that City were absolutely looking to win this game because I hardly saw Fernando bomb forward he was as conservative as any DM would be.Also whenever Navas crossed the ball into our box there was hardly a City player to take advantage with the only exception of the mistake by Courtois which led to their goal. For all their attacking intent Pellegrini was never comfortable enough to play 2 up front as is his custom and Milner on the flanks hardly made any attacking contribution but was more of a workman to annul our counter attacking threat. City's conservatism nullified our counter attacking plan imo

Kudos to all our players for a fantastic 210+ minutes of football over 4 days against the top teams. At least we did not subject their players to such physicality as they resorted to whenwe visited the Etihad. Yesterday they had two yellow cards carrying on with their dirty fouls while we had none. At this point Zouma is looking an absolute bargain compared to a certain Mangala and a fast tracked FA disciplinary action didn't have the desired effect and it was quite refreshing to see RLC, Christensen and Ake on the bench against the defending champions.

Good game guys. Matic was a beast. Easily the best player for his position in the EPL, and fast becoming one of the best in Europe.

Zouma was sensational. Amazing power and athleticism. Will only get better with age.
+4
Zouma in his last season in ligue wasn't beaten in a 1v1 situation and you'll rarely see that happen in the epl. Fantastic young defender.
+1
Just noticed that League Cup final is March 1st, only one day after Leicester City. Is this correct?
They'll reschedule the Leicester game.

Kurt zouma was a beast in ligue 1 and looks a beast now.
+2
whats the latest on Cesc's injury..will he be available for Villa game?? IMO we need him badly and hopefully Cuardrado will be ready to start as well.
No press conference from anyone at Chelsea, so there's basically no updates on anything.

But I think he should be ready after a full week rest.
isn't there a signed agreement between the media and each of the clubs requiring them to do a press conference. I thought he'd send Holland out like last time. lol watch the whole club get banned smh
It'll just be a fine.
Sorry but today Henry won my respect for puting that daddy boy Rednapp on its place, His analyses of the game where spot on and he also put into perspective liverpool exta time game as reason for Chelsea second half tired display. Also, we have the right balance to become champions but it's down to consistency and killer instinct, which I think we have improved on in recent time. Now with Cuadrado arriving, Ramires back, Zouma replacing Cahill with ease and maintaining the 5 point gap going into Feburary, we are definitely more confident.

Nahhh thats not him. Its that guy frm Rush hour
Remy 5 starts 5 goals. Quality guy, never cries about anything does his job when he's called on. Top player.

Exactly what you want from a rotational player, not someone who overcompensates from their lack of playing through being desperate + selfish, but some one that is calm, cool and collected.
He would have caused more trouble if Fabregas was around to spot his runs.
