Watch: Jamie Carragher slams Chelsea striker Diego Costa

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher slams Chelsea striker Diego Costa during 2-0 loss to Leicester City

Jamie Carragher has slammed Diego Costa after the Chelsea striker was caught criticising his defenders on camera during a 2-0 loss to Leicester City.

The Spain international has come back into the Chelsea side in recent weeks after the striker fell out-of-favour under manager Jose Mourinho in November.

However, the Blues boss restored the former Atletico Madrid striker to his starting line-up for their mid-week clash against Porto in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge.

Costa played his part in the 2-0 win as the £32m signing forced an own goal before Willian netted the west London side’s second in their final Champions League group-stage game.

However, former Liverpool defender Carragher was heavily critical of the forward after he appeared to lambast his defence during a 2-0 loss to the Foxes at King Power Stadium.

Costa scored 20 times in 26 Premier League games during their title-winning season in the Premier League last term.
