Tottenham defender Eric Dier has admitted he enjoyed going up against former Chelsea forward Diego Costa - and claimed the controversial Spanish star would sometimes pinch him.
Speaking as a panellist on Sky show A League of Their Own, the England international called Costa 'sneaky' but relished winding him up during London derbies against the Blues.
Dier played against Costa in 'The Battle of the Bridge', one of the most intense derby games in recent memory as Chelsea drew 2-2 with Tottenham in 2016 in dramatic fashion to hand Leicester City the Premier League title.
