Twitter reacts to Diego Costa’s antics during Chelsea vs Arsenal clash

Posted by

Chelsea striker Diego Costa‘s performance against Arsenal in the 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge has sparked major debate among many on social media.

The Spaniard was heavily involved in the game’s most controversial incident late in the first-half as he clashed with Gunners defenders Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista.

Costa was fortunate not to be shown a straight red card after he raised his hands into the face of the Frenchman and then played a huge role in Gabriel getting sent off as he reacted to what appeared to be a flick from the Brazilian.

The Blues went on to take full advantage of the numerical advantage as Kurt Zouma broke the deadlock early in the second half after heading home Cesc Fabregas’s free-kick and then Eden Hazard’s deflected effort in injury time sealed all three points for the hosts and made it back-to-back victories in the week.
