Chelsea star Diego Costa is a CHEAT - admits his OWN team-mate!

Diego Costa has been labelled a “cheat” by one of his OWN team-mates. The Chelsea striker was at the centre of the controversy during his side's 2-0 win over Arsenal on Saturdayas he further fuelled his reputation as the Premier League's number one bad guy. The fiery Spain star was booked for an incident involving Laurent Koscielny and moments later became embroiled in an argument with Gunners defender Gabriel, which saw the Arsenal man sent off. Costa is expected to be charged by the Football Association for his on-field behaviour - and his case won't be helped by a bizarre post-match TV interview given by Kurt Zouma to beIN Sports. The Blues defender said Costa likes to get opponents “out of his game” and they [ Chelsea] are “proud” of him even though he “likes to cheat a lot.” He was asked by beIN Sports: "Of course Arsenal will feel hard done-by, they will claim you should have had a player sent-off in Diego Costa but this is a player that's famed for riling other players isn't it? Are you surprised that they reacted in this way?" The Frenchman replied: “No, we're not surprised because we know Diego. Everyone knows Diego and this guy likes to cheat a lot and put the opponent out of his game. “That happened in the game but he's a really nice guy. We're proud to have him, like the other players, and we're happy to win this game today.” The remarkable comments may only put pressure on the FA to charge Costa if referee Mike Dean admits he did not see the full incident and the bust-up between the Spain striker and Gabriel and Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny. Costa will learn his fate later today as to whether he will be charged by the FA.
