Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho disappointed with Everton treatment of Diego Costa
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has admitted he was disappointed with the way some Everton players treated Diego Costa.
Speaking after his side beat the Toffees 6-3 at Goodison Park, the Portuguese tactician noted that he felt they were trying to get Costa booked.
"The only think I didn't like in this game - apart from some of our defensive mistakes - was the way some Everton players were trying to create problems for him," he said, as reported by Sky Sports.
"I don't think this is English football. There is a good tradition with Everton teams because everything is good, everything is positive: the manager, the quality of their football.
"But to be chasing cards to a player who once more had good behaviour and was just here to play football is disappointing.
"At the end of the story Diego is maybe the best player in the Premier League in the first three matches and he has two yellow cards; one against Burnley where he didn't simulate it was a penalty and today when everyone was chasing him to get him in trouble. That is disappointing."
