And they call Costa a cheat!

Chelsea and Arsenal fans will wake up this morning with no doubt in their minds about the deviousness of Diego Costa, who yesterday wound up the Arsenal defence into disrepair, provoking Arsenal's Gabriel Paulista to lash out at the mischievous Spaniard and earn himself an unfair-yet-just red card. 

These two players, however, are not without their history, and it seems Gabriel Paulista may have had some overdue karma from his time at Villarreal. Prior to their moves to Arsenal and Chelsea, Costa and Gabriel tussled with one another whenever Atletico Madrid faced Villarreal, and the video above shows Gabriel pulling a ludicrous dive after a penalty-box nudge by Costa, which led to an undeserved booking for Chelsea's talisman. There's never a good time to get your comeuppance, but poor Gabriel Paulista's came at the worst possible time.
