The best Škrtel v Costa tweets are brought to you in association with the pair’s eye-catching tussle in last night’s League Cup semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge.


Chelsea booked their place in the final with a 1-0 win against Liverpool thanks to Branislav Ivanović’s extra time winner, but it was Škrtel and Costa who caught the eye as the latter appeared to stamp on the former…

Costa v Skrtel II. Diego Costa is walking on thin ice surely? http://t.co/3mQiadBr02

Hmm. Doesn’t look good, does it? There was also this potential penalty for Costa…

Costa goes down in the Liverpool area and looked to have been tripped by Skrtel. #CFC #LFC [via @6secondsavage] https://t.co/QKcCeh6ZpO

That’s six of one, half a dozen of the other there for me, Clive.

Anyway, kick back and enjoy the best Škrtel v Costa tweets that Twitter had to offer…

On looks alone, Skrtel v Diego Costa looks like the key match-up in a game between two opposing wings of a maximum security jail

Good, solid observation. A fine way to kick off proceedings.

If you look very closely, you can see this on Martin Skrtel's leg. #STAMP #CFCvLFC #CapitalOneCup pic.twitter.com/iLwsgqnLSc

Bit kinky, that. Are you sure you’ve got the right end of the stick, as it were?

Costa also then went on to stamp on Emre Can, fuelling talk of retrospective punishment and presenting an open goal that Classic Football tucked home with aplomb…

When you get that many stamps from Costa you normally get a free coffee don't you?

Textbook. Back of the net! Etc.

Slovakian centre-back Škrtel was the subject of many a speculation as to who or what he looks like…

Skrtel is a monster, looks like a convict

Skrtel looks like he should be walking around Slough highstreet in a matching no fear tracksuit from sports direct

Skrtel must be the product of several generations of inbreeding.

Has anyone ever seen Martin Skrtel and Joe Lauzon in the same place?

— Ives Galarcep (@SoccerByIves) January 27, 2015

It seems Brendan Rodgers missed a trick if the following had panned out as predicted, which it undoubtedly would have…

Someone put a bandage on Skrtel's head. Guaranteed goal there.

Then things got a bit weird…

There's an old saying in Merceyside that says, Skrtel me once, shame on…shame on you. Skrtel me…you can't get Skrteled again.

— Nick Rogers (@_NickRogers_) January 27, 2015

Merceyside? Is that you, Mystic Megson?

Let’s have one from the vaults to finish with…
