Costa and Gabriel have had priors, as the incident from Villareal vs. Atlético Madrid from a few years ago shows, and if lip-readers in Brazil are to be believed, Gabriel is certainly no fan of Costa’s switch of allegiance to Spain, either.

But most of what happened Saturday was probably simply down to the Chelsea provocateur successfully riling up the younger man, starting with Gabriel jumping in for a bit of afters from the Koscielny incident, continuing through the matching yellows and constant back-‘n’-forth chirping, and ending with the little flick of the heel, which Gabriel tried to disguise, hilariously, with a hand motion.

While there are rumors that The FA will look into the Costa – Koscielny incident for any possible retrospective action, the Arsenal match was another example of Diego’s ridiculous ability to toe the line and get others in trouble.
