Arsenal news: Arsene Wenger aims dig at Diego Costa and Chelsea

Arsene Wenger has aimed a dig at Diego Costa’s situation at Chelsea when defending Alexis Sanchez’s strop during Arsenal’s latest victory.

Last week, Chelsea’s leading scorer was involved in a bust-up with Antonio Conte and his medical team over a back injury and subsequently missed Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Leicester City.

Arsenal, meanwhile, kept pace with the Premier League leaders with a 4-0 win away at Swansea City, but Sanchez stole the headlines after he threw a strop on the bench when he was replaced late on in the game.

But Wenger insists he is unconcerned by the Chilean’s reaction to being substituted.

Diego Costa had a bust-up with Antonio Conte and Chelsea’s medical staff. 

‘I’d rather have someone who always wants to be involved than someone who doesn’t want to play.

‘I have enough problems – I don’t need a Costa problem on top of that.

‘Alexis is a guy who wants to fight everywhere, sometimes where he shouldn’t. But that is a part of his game. All my players want to play for every minute but for me this is not a story.’
