Arsenal old-boy Martin Keown says he’d loved to have played against Chelsea’s Diego Costa (Video)

Former Arsenal centre-half Martin Keown made a bolshy statement on TV on Sunday night, as the talking-head claimed he’d loved to have played against Chelsea’s Diego Costa.

Keown’s comments were made on the back of Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Arsenal in the Premier League.

Costa took centre-stage in the match during a confrontation with Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel.

Keown believes defenders need to be physical with Costa, and the ex-pro would have relished the opportunity to go “toe to toe” with the Chelsea forward.
