Diego Costa keeps £2 coin thrown at him during League Cup final

Chelsea striker Diego Costa had a £2 coin thrown at him by an angry Tottenham Hotspur fan during the Capital One Cup final, but rather than react simply picked it up and tucked it inside his shorts as a good luck charm.

Costa is a player that produces a special kind of hatred among opposition fans, thanks to a confrontational style that demands attention but also respect.

The Brazilian-born forward is a player any team would love to have and has clearly got used to being out for special attention by supporters, which is perhaps why he didn't get flustered when loose change came flying his way at Wembley yesterday.

Keep the change Diego!

Costa should keep the memento alongside his winner's meal as a reminder of his first major success with Chelsea, one that he was a huge part of.

Mourinho's main man was at his pesky best leading the line and created the crucial second goal after the break, forcing a mistake from Spurs defender Kyle Walker as he diverted a hopeful cross into his own net.

If Costa stays fit the sky is the limit

You can't help but feel that Chelsea's hopes of completing a magnificent treble will be largely dependent on Costa's ability to stay fit, firing and free from suspension for the remainder of the campaign.

Costa has exceeded even Mourinho's high expectations in a tremendous start to life in England, scoring 17 times in 20 Premier League games.

That kind of prolific record only scratches the surface of Costa's influence in big games, with the Atletico Madrid forward a genuine nightmare for even the most established Premier League centre-back.

Perhaps that's why the Independent's recall of the coin incident yesterday is something Chelsea fans should take some twisted pride from, you can't ruffle Costa and he's on the verge of achieving something very special this season.

Chelsea fans, does Costa already have to go down as one of the club's best ever signings? How important is he for the first rest of the season and Chelsea's Champions League challenge in particular? Let us know by having your say in the comment box below!
