The Saturday match witnessed a nasty incident on the pitch where Diego Costa was indulged in a fight with Arsenal men Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista.
On Saturday, 19th September in an important Premier League game week 6 clash between Chelsea and Arsenal, Chelsea and Spanish international forward Diego Costa was involved in an ugly spat on Saturday in a match between Chelsea and Arsenal. Chelsea defeated Arsenal 2-0 as the Gunners were down to 9 men in the match.
The Brazilian-born Spanish striker even successfully convinced the referee Mike Dean to flash a red card at Paulista.
Diego Costa initially slapped Laurent Koscielny during a tussle inside the penalty box. Gabriel Paulista came as a mediator to stop the fight but was eventually involved in it.
Paulista cunningly tried to stamp on Diego Costa’s feet which Mike Dean saw. He immediately showed the red card and sent off the Brazilian central defender.
Here are best twitter reactions on Costa ban:

Costa suspension gives both Remy & Falcao a chance to have a run in the team. Would personally start Falcao to help his confidence. #CFC

Although I’m sure he’ll have something to say about Costa’s suspension whilst Gabriel’s suspension has been overturned (I think?)

Chelsea fans outraged at the suspension of Costa for being a bell end but no comment on the sexism displayed by Eva’s departure #CFC

The suspension & clearance of Costa & Gabriel respectively shows how out of his depth Mike Dean is & has always been.

How can you suspend a player 3 games when he was never sent off? Diego Costa is a villain but that’s just odd.
