Liverpool's Brendan Rodgers, left, and Chelsea's José Mourinho, right, both had issues from a fiery Capital One Cup semi-final.


Brendan Rodgers accused Diego Costa of deliberately stamping on Emre Can and Martin Skrtel during a fiery Capital One Cup semi-final second leg that his Liverpool team lost narrowly to Branislav Ivanovic’s extra-time goal for Chelsea.

The Liverpool manager did nothing to conceal his unhappiness at Costa, who could face disciplinary proceedings from the Football Association because the referee, Michael Oliver, took no action on either occasion. A ban would potentially rule the striker out of Saturday’s Premier League match at home to Manchester City.

Skrtel could also be in trouble with the FA after a photograph emerged of him making an apparently offensive gesture.

Mourinho was furious that the pundit Jamie Redknapp had criticised Costa for being “bang out of order” and having “put his studs in for a certain red card”, as Sky played footage of the striker’s evening with the tag line “Diego Costa crimes”.
