Diego Costa a lucky boy

Controversial Chelsea striker Diego Costa scored a superb late winner in last night’s 2-1 Premier League win over rivals West Ham United.

Already on a yellow card, many have argued that Diego Costa should have earlier been sent off for a terrible studs-up challenge on West Ham goalkeeper Adrian.

New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte claimed the referee made the right decision in his post-match press conference.

Pair speak up on Instagram

West Ham stopper Adrian shared a photo of Diego Costa’s horrific late challenge and noted that it “could have been much worse“.

Obviously pleased with last night’s result (and not particularly apologetic), Diego Costa shared a pretty cool video celebrating his first goal of the season.

Check out the two Instagram posts below.
