Diego Costa branded a ”cheat” by his OWN Chelsea team-mate 

As the dust is yet to settle over the antics of Chelsea striker,Diego Costa after the match against Arsenal,
Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has labeled Costa a cheat but the players are proud of him.
Zouma made the amazing remark in a post-match TV interview which will only turn up the heat on the bad-boy striker.

Costa is waiting to hear whether he will be hit for a retrospective ban by the FA after his bust-up with Arsenal defender Gabriel who was sent off in the clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Zouma said Costa likes to get opponents “out of his game” and they are “proud” of him even though he “likes to cheat a lot.”
Zouma made the remarks to beIN Sports who interviewed him after the game.
He was asked “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?”
Zouma 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.
“He’s a really nice guy”: Zouma says the players are proud to have him on their team
“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.
