A Stoke City steward's claim that Diego Costa stamped on him was refuted as "utter nonsense" and then apparently resolved.
Moments after the Blues' 1-0 loss at the Britannia, a member of Stoke's security staff reported Costa to the referee after an incident on the touchline.
TV footage of the alleged incident showed Chelsea striker Costa going to retrieve the ball for a throw-in and then appearing to make contact with the steward with his foot.
A Chelsea spokesperson responded simply: "Utter nonsense". It is understood that the issue was then dealt with amicably and put to bed.
Referee Anthony Taylor will now include the incident in his match report, but further action would appear highly unlikely.
