Video: Chelsea striker Diego Costa throws a strop, team-mate finds it hilarious

Diego Costa loves throwing a strop doesn't he?!

We're almost at the time of the year when the pantomime is in full swing, but it seems like there's a pantomime every day at Chelsea and it's all thanks to Diego Costa.

The temperamental Spanish international really hasn't been at his best on the field – at least not at actually playing football. He has however been pretty exceptional at winding people up, getting players sent off and generally throwing his toys out of the pram

He's already had a pretty great tussle with Arsenal's Gabriel Paulista, which saw the Brazilian get sent off and then Costa face retrospective action. Then he tried to make Ryan Shawcross feel a bit self-conscious about his smelly pits – though it back-fired on Costa.

And he even managed to throw a strop during Chelsea's rather drab draw with London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. While Chelsea managed a just one feeble shot on target, Costa was sat on the bench looking all sorts of freezing and miserable. 

And when he realised that he wasn't coming in, he didn't half throw a right stop! 

While any mere mortal would've probably been terrified at the sight of a ticked off Diego Costa, John Obi Mikel saw the lighter side of it and had a right giggle to himself.
