Arsenal FC were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea FC in Stamford Bridge following goals from Kurt Zouma and Eden Hazard. However, the match was marred by an ugly incident between Diego Costa and Gabriel with the latter being sent off in the first half.
Gabriel and Diego Costa share a history with the latter having elbowed Gabriel during their La Liga days. Costa and Gabriel were seen involved in a spat once again, this time leading to the Arsenal defender being sent off.
Santi Cazorla was also sent off for a double yellow card in the second half as Arsenal finished with 9 men.
The Gooners were not too pleased with the antics of Costa and unsurprisingly used some choice adjectives for the Spaniard.
Costa managed to only get 1 yellow card for punching Koscielny & Gabriel and also kicking out at the Ox. Unreal from Mike Dean. Cheat.

Costa’s training regime – 1) Warm up 2) How to get an opponent sent off 3) How not to get sent off while doing the above 4) Cool down a Bhavik Saglani (@DoctorLFC) September 19, 2015
Is Costa the least sporting player in the recent history of the Premier League? Not even SuA?rez relied on bending the rules as much as him.

Diego Costa is the sort of fella that would want to fight you if you bumped his trolley in tesco
