Chelsea morning round-up: Henry slams Costa, agent contacted over defender

Diego Costa 2

A round up of news stories this morning related to Chelsea.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry told Sky Sports that Chelsea striker Diego Costa crossed the line against Liverpool last night.

The Blues forward was lucky not to be shown a straight red card after a stamp on Liverpool midfielder Emre Can.

Henry says he loves the way Costa players and loves his aggression, but feels he went too far.

ESPN claims Chelsea will test Real Madrid out with an offer for experienced defender Sergio Ramos.

The Blues are one of the sides reportedly interested in offering him a fresh challenge before the end of his career.

The club have reportedly sounded out his agent over whether the centre back would be up for moving to London.

Brendan Rodgers has been quoted by West London Sport giving the credit for Chelsea’s win last night to Thibaut Courtois.

Rodgers feels that his Liverpool team were the better team over the two legs of the League Cup semi-final.

He’s suggested that Courtois is the main reason the Blues will be walking out at Wembley.
