Diego Costa somehow managed to avoid receiving his marching orders today, despite tussling with every available Arsenal player on the pitch.

The Chelsea striker is renowned for his bully-boy tactics, but his mad-man aggression reached new levels this afternoon.

While Arsenal’s Gabriel Paulista and Santi Carzola saw red, the Spanish striker evaded any punishment from Mike Dean – depsite a whole host of indiscretions.

Here’s the evidence, your honour…

Speaking after to the game to BT Sport, Arsenal manager vented his frustration at Mike Dean’s reluctance to send off Costa.

“(There is a) big sense of injustice,” Wenger told BT Sport 1. “I think Diego Costa is a red card”, Arsene Wenger said.

“I wouldn’t like to be Mike Dean tonight because I cannot understand the situations. Twice he [Costa] should have been sent off.

“Look at the situation well before the cross comes in, he hits him [Laurent Koscielny] in the face on purpose.
