Reports are out claiming that Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer was unimpressed by Diego Costa’s antics during Chelsea’s win over Arsenal.
Arsenal centre back Gabriel was given his marching orders in the first half of the fiery London derby on Saturday afternoon after supposedly kicking out at Chelsea’s Spanish striker.
“I like him, I’m a fan of his and I like the way he plays, I like the way he’s aggressive,” he said. “But there’s a line and he crossed that line today, on more than one occasion.
“This, I hate… trying to get Coquelin booked with his reaction. I hate that, I really do. He should get a yellow card himself for doing it, that’s the law.
“With Koscielny, his hands… two in the face. He knows what he’s doing, he intends to catch him and he could be sent off if the referee sees that. He really is an angry man, you can see him scratch Gabriel, he’s winding Gabriel up… it’s got nothing to do with him at all.
“And then he’s still at it, little slap, right in front of the referee. He’s sucked Gabriel right in, and Gabriel is absolutely pathetic for falling for it, he really is.”
