Much of the pre-match build-up ahead of PSG vs. Chelsea centred around the reunion between the Blues and David Luiz. The Brazilian defender swapped west London for the French capital in a £50m deal last year, shocking many onlookers following criticism he had received for his unorthodox playing style.
In a midfield role, Luiz has been a little quieter through the game so far, but his wandering instincts brought him into contact with Diego Costa, whose controversial approach to the game led to a little scuffle. The Spain international appeared to grab a handful of the PSG man’s hair – which is easily done, to be fair – judging by this picture.
We’re sure it was, as Richard Keys would say, “just banter” on the Parc des Princes turf, but had the referee been looking it could well be another ban for Costa!
