A ‘rejuvenated’ Diego Costa managed to finally get past David de Gea as Chelsea pulled off a last minute dramatic equaliser against Manchester United.
Having taken the lead early on in the second half, United could perhaps be blamed for taking their foot off the gas as they allowed Chelsea to test David de Gea on multiple occasions. While the Spaniard stood tall for most of the match, he was finally beaten by a resurgent Diego Costa whose extra time equaliser was lauded by Chelsea fans on social media.
Both sets of fans seemed to concentrate on the heroics of the two star players who played an integral role at Stamford Bridge earlier this night. Here are the best reactions following the 1-1 draw.

Why is it acceptable for Diego Costa to scream in two officials faces and get away with it? If that’s any other player, they’re booked.

There were those who expressed their desire to see Diego Costa in a Manchester United shirt.
Really like Diego Costa, his passion, fight and skill.
If he was playing for us today, we would of won comfortably. Rooney’s poor.

Meanwhile Manchester United fans lauded David de Gea’s performance as someone suggested that their famous No 7 jersey be given to the Spaniard for his heroic services.

David De Gea demonstrated more quality in that game than rest of the talent on both teams combined. What an athlete — Men in Blazers (@MenInBlazers) February 7, 2016
There are certain keepers you’d pay to watch. Schmeichel was one. De Gea is another
