Watch Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson eyeball Chelsea star Diego Costa

Jordan Henderson squares up to Diego Costa during League Cup semi-final first-leg clash

Jordan Henderson has become a social media sensation after a clip emerged of the Liverpool midfielder eyeballing Chelsea star Diego Costa during a 1-1 draw at Anfield on Tuesday.

The England international was reported to have clashed with the controversial Chelsea striker in the tunnel following the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final.

And there certainly appeared to be trouble brewing on the pitch between the pair after footage emerged of the Liverpool and Chelsea stars eyeing each other up during the game.

Costa is undoubtedly one of the meanest-looking footballers in the Premier League, but Henderson showed plenty of backbone as he gave Costa the eyes in true Roy Keane fashion.

The Liverpool vice-captain’s no-nonsense approach appeared to work, too, as the former Atletico Madrid striker slowly retreated away from a menacing-looking Gerrard.

Fortunately for us supporters, we’ll get to see round two of the bout when Liverpool make the trip to Stamford Bridge for the second leg next Tuesday.
