Chelsea striker Diego Costa didn't commit a foul against Arsenal today despite picking up a booking at Stamford Bridge.
The enigmatic Spanish international was once again in the midst of controversy this afternoon as he played an active role in the dismissal of Arsenal defender Gabriel.
Costa initially appeared to hit Gunners defender Laurent Koscielny in the face as they challenged for a cross. Ultimately, this led to a number of confrontations, which eventually saw Gabriel removed from the field.

As ever, Costa, who was replaced by Loic Remy late on, proved a nuisance throughout proceedings but surprisingly didn't commit one foul.
This statistic will no doubt surprise Arsenal fans, who felt Costa should have joined Gabriel for an early bath
Costa is certainly playing a risky game as he continues to be embroiled in controversy week in, week out. Ultimately, he appears to know exactly what he's doing, but it may well cost him in the near future.
With just one goal in the Premier League so far this season, the Brazilian-born forward should concentrate on rekindling his best form in west London. Despite his failure to find the back of the net today, Chelsea fans may well thank him for helping the club secure all three points against their London rivals.
