LONDON: Chelsea striker Diego Costa was taken to hospital after sustaining a rib injury during the League Cup holders’ penalty shootout defeat at Stoke City on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila), manager Jose Mourinho said. The Brazil-born Spain striker appeared to hurt himself in a collision with Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland and after initially playing on, he went off in the 33rd minute, with Loic Remy taking his place. Chelsea lost 5-4 on penalties, with Butland saving the decisive spot-kick from Eden Hazard after the game had finished 1-1 in normal time.
