Chelsea striker Diego Costa took no prisoners in a futsal tournament in Kuwait this weekend, bagging five and being a general nuisance throughout.

The hot-headed Spain striker steamed into tackles as per his Chelsea usual, barging through the back of his Nottingham Forest opponents several times.

It was a slightly bizarre set-up as the Chelsea man was out there to play alongside Falcao (the Brazilian futsal star, not Chelsea's newest signing) against a Forest side.

He then played against a team of players dressed up in inflatable fat suits as things got a little surreal. It's all part of the Al-Roudan tournament in the Arab state, which sees the likes of Andriy Shevchenko and Carles Puyol among others take part.

Unfortunately for Costa, his idol Falcao was injured and unable to play.

Speaking to Globo Esporte he said: "I have the honour of meeting an idol, not only of mine but of every Brazilian.

"It was a pity [Falcao was injured], I came with a huge desire to play with the man, but it could not happen. He is recovering. It is a great pleasure."

Crucially for all Chelsea fans and Jose Mourinho in particular, Costa emerged from the matches without injury.

It's not your typical post-season rest and relaxation though, and it will not be long before Costa is back at Cobham training ground reporting for duty with Chelsea.
