Diego Costa and Oscar's bust-up in training will certainly be forgotten in no time since Chelsea won their game against Scunthorpe United yesterday, managing to turn their focus back on the game. It could have been much worse had we lost the game and dropped out of the FA Cup, though.

For Kurt Zouma, the incident between Diego Costa and Oscar from last week is only a result of how intense Chelsea's training sessions are.

"For us training is like a game. We have to give everything. The way you train is the way you play. So first of all, we have to improve in training. Is that why you get tackles like that? Of course."

"In training we are working hard every day. Everybody is putting good intensity into their game. We have played well in a few games and are improving much better, so let's keep the intensity very high."

"If you watched the [Scunthorpe] game you can see how [Oscar and Costa] are both together. Just like everybody, they are very good friends."

Scuffles between friends shouldn't be much of a surprise, especially when they are challenging themselves in football training sessions almost every day. Sparks are ought to fly from time to time and if anything, Costa and Oscar's partnership on and off the pitch will only improve from here on now, as they learn each other's boundaries.
