Football fans rage as Diego Costa once again escapes red card to net Chelsea winner [Tweets]

Share this on

Football fans have taken to Twitter demanding justice, after another Diego Costa conterversy.

The fiery Spaniard made headlines last week, after his malicious challenge on West Ham keeper Adrian, went unpunished by the officials, with Costa going on to net a late winner in Antonio Conte’s first Premier League game in charge.

Fast forward five days and his performance at Vicarage Road mirrored the one seen at Stamford Bridge.

Fortunate not to receive a second yellow card for an apparent act of simulation, Costa took full advantage of his reprieve by hitting the winner three minutes from time as Chelsea beat Watford 2-1 on Saturday.

After another lucky escape for the Spaniard, football fans took to Twitter to demand justice.

Take a look at some of the Tweets below.

Stupid dive by Diego Costa. Lucky he’s not booked, that was embarrassing.

#diving .In all the Olympic successes, it must have hurt Tom Daley, that Diego Costa got more points for his dive on Saturday.

How has Diego Costa not been booked for that dive? Jon Moss should be in league 2 next week.

Just seen Diego Costa's dive at #watfordfc when already on a yellow card. When are refs going to clamp down on such fraud? #MOTD

So Diego Costa has now

-attempted leg murder on Adrian
-executed the worst dive of the season

without picking up a second yellow.

Diego Costa escapes a second yellow card for a blatant dive. He should've been sent off on Monday and he gets away with it again.
