Who saw John Obi Mikel’s reaction at the time?
Probably the biggest story to come out of Chelsea’s 0-0 draw at Spur son Sunday was the behaviour of Diego Costa on the Blues bench.
The bad blood between Costa and Jose Mourinho seems to have continued as the striker threw a bib at his manager in Chelsea
Costa was not named in Chelsea’s starting 11 and was left on the bench all through their goalless Premier League draw with Tottenham on Sunday, November 29.
After warming up, Costa was not called up to enter the game and he was not happy about it. As he made his way to the bench, the striker pulled his bin and threw it backwards towards his coach, Mourinho.

Mourinho who was focused on the game did not see the bib. When pressed on the incident after the game, Chelsea manager Mourinho said he didn’t expect Ccosta to be happy to be on the bench.
“I was not expecting a player to be on the bench jumping and singing... a top player on the bench is not happy. If he wants to hurt me, it's not with a bib,” Mourinho said.
Nigerian midfielder, John Obi Mikel who was sitting behind Mourinho saw it all and laughed. The incidence has caused a lot of reactions on twitter as usual and below are some of the tweets we could gather

See Mikel chilling happily on the bench. Mourinho thinks he's doing him. He doesn't know that he's doing himself— èη!gmá (@enigma106) November 29, 2015
