Chelsea striker Diego Costa failed to participate in the club's post-match warm down after their Premier League clash against Tottenham, instead opting to sit on the club's team bus for 30 minutes at White Hart Lane. 

This has been reported by the Telegraph, who claim that the enigmatic striker was eventually joined by his teammates after the stalemate in north London.

With Costa watching on, Belgium international Eden Hazard started in attack, but the versatile forward failed to fire the west London outfit to all three points. 

Despite failing to feature yesterday, Costa hit the headlines during the game after throwing his bib in the direction of Mourinho. The Blues boss played down the incident in his post-match interview, but it appears that Costa was far from happy throughout proceedings. 

Big decision 

Ahead of Chelsea's Premier League clash against Bournemouth on Saturday, Mourinho has a big decision to make when it comes to the striker.

Should the 'Special One' hand the Spain international a recall? With just three goals in 11 league games, Costa's record has been rather uninspiring. Throughout the campaign, the striker just hasn't delivered.

For one reason or another, Costa has been far more concerned with fighting his opponents, but Mourinho's decision to drop him could act as a wake-up call.

Bournemouth, who visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday, have been struggling at the back recently, so this weekend's fixture could represent the perfect opportunity for Costa to play his way back into form.
