Chelsea duo separated after training ground bust-up

A strong tackle during a “highly competitive” training session at Chelsea led to an altercation between Diego Costa and Oscar, Sky Sports reports.

Team-mates and coaching staff had to step in to calm the situation down. No one was harmed and, according to witnesses, the Blues’ pair walked off the pitch together. They were laughing and seemingly had settled their differences from the Oscar’s challenge.

The Brazilian midfielder played down the incident via his official Twitter account:

Chelsea have endured an unexpectedly difficult season in the Premier League, having lost nine times already and sacking coach José Mourinho. Costa has been somewhat of a scapegoat of the Blues’ struggles, having scored just six goals so far and being booed by the fans in the first match coached by Guus Hiddink.
