ANYONE WATCHING SATURDAY’S Stoke-Chelsea clash will probably have noticed an argument between Diego Costa and Ryan Shawcross.

During the game that ultimately saw Stoke emerge with a 1-0 victory, Costa clearly accused the defender of having BO amid what appeared to be a heated argument between the two.

Not one to lack a sense of humour, however, Shawcross’ wife Kath subsequently posted a picture of the smiling defender, adding: “Made sure @Ryanshawy put his deodorant on this evening.”

Meanwhile, Stoke confirmed that one of their stewards has accused Costa of deliberately stamping on his foot during the game, with inconclusive TV footage showing a brief altercation between the two.

Chelsea have described the allegations as “utter nonsense,” though it is understood that the incident will now be included in the referee’s match report and the FA could subsequently decide to take action against Costa.
