Chelsea Bad Boy Complains About Unfair EPL Treatment

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has admitted he is frustrated with the treatment he receives in the Premier League.

Zidane Comments On Former Barca Star Rumours

The Spaniard, who scored a late winner for the Blues against West Ham United on Monday night, was at the centre of a controversy once again after he seemingly got away with a late challenge on Hammers goalkeeper Adrian.

Costa believes officials pay more attention to him than the other players on the field, and feels he has a target on his back in every game.

"I am aware of (the new dissent law) now. The second time I went to talk to him (the referee in the game against West Ham), he showed me (the yellow card). I even found it a bit weird, but then I understood. I went to apologise at half-time and that's it," Costa told ESPN Brasil.

"But I'll be honest, I am targeted here, by the referees, the people… if I do something, it's totally different than if any other players do. It needs to be seen, that people targeted me.

"It's something I have to deal with and I ask God that these things don't disturb me and don't take the sequence of the games from me, which happens sometimes and gives me suspensions."

The 27-year-old made 41 appearances in all competitions for the Stamford Bridge club last season, and managed to score 16 goals and assist a further 11 strikes.
