Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho clashes with reporters when questioned about the behaviour of striker Diego Costa after the Blues' 2-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger called Costa's antics "disgusting" after his players reacted with irritation to the Spain striker's apparent antics, with Arsenal defender Gabriel sent off after a row with the forward, who only received a yellow card.
When asked whether Costa deserved sterner punishment, a fiery Mourinho tells reporters his striker "played like he has to play", suggesting one of the assembled journalists expects football to have the same level of physicality as badminton.
