We all love to hate Diego Costa. The most evil-looking of strikers makes for the perfect pantomime villain with his snarling appearance and dodgy style of play. Sunderland cannot afford to lose to Chelsea at the Stadium of Light, but Costa’s goal has put Sam Allardyce’s side up against in already.
Sunderland fans aren’t happy and its fair to say there’s some anger in the air.
I don’t know how I feel about this. I hate Chelsea & Costa but I also want Big Sam & that Sunderland trash out of the Prem.

People just don’t like Costa – or Sunderland – but Arsenal fans are clearly confused about who to feel more bitter about.

Fortunately the world isn’t overrun with Sunderland fans and we have some rather chirpy Geordies about, too!

Diego Costa very popular with Newcastle fans right now ????????

Newcastle probably want to make sure that they do their own job (beating Villa) before they have too much of a chuckle at Sunderland’s failings.
Yes Sunderland will finally get relegated.

No one seems to like Sunderland. Is it because of Big Sam? The poor guy, all he ever does is produce beautiful, slick football. He’s a gift to the Premier League and Sunderland have just been doing wonderfully for years.
Chelsea won Leicester the league and now they're sending Sunderland down, wonderful.

The Blues have lost their title, but they’re sure having an impact!
