No tunnel of love at Anfield as Jordan Henderson and Diego Costa confront each other

The Reds Capital One Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge is likely to have an extra edge next week after Jordan Henderson and Diego Costa raised the animosity levels in the first leg.

Both got into an argument during Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at Anfield when the Chelsea striker confronted the Reds’ vice-captain after he had tangled with Cesc Fabregas in the second half.

The Press Association Sport understands that there was a verbal exchange between the pair but  there was no physical contact between the players.

The Reds gaffer Brendan Rodgers was unaware of the confrontation as he was already in his office after Raheem Sterling’s goal equalised Eden Hazard’s first-half penalty.

Today Liverpool have played down the incident in a statement but it adds an extra dimension to next Tuesday’s second leg, when Liverpool will seek to become the first side since Atletico Madrid in April to win at Stamford Bridge.

Diego Costa is Chelsea’s main player this season after his transfer from the Spanish club Atletico Madrid during last summer. The Spaniard is leading the goal scorer list this season.
