Diego Costa ends Arsene Wenger's hopes of fairytale ending with Arsenal in the Europa League.

Arsene Wenger will still be having nightmares about Diego Costa long after he takes charge of his final Arsenal fixture later this month.

The snarling centre forward ended the French coach’s hopes of a fairytale ending with the Gunners as he inspired Atletico Madrid to victory in the Europa League semi-final.

Costa knows the north Londoners all too well from his time at Chelsea and the Spanish international hasn’t forgotten how to pick the Arsenal lock.

He’s scored more goals against Wenger’s team than any other English club, however none of his previous strikes will have hurt the departing manager more than this one.

Arsenal’s Premier League campaign is already as good as over.

Their hopes of finishing in the top four are long gone, Burnley only three points worse off in the standings, this was the final call for the 68-year-old. This was his last chance.

He spoke earlier this week of wanting to deliver the Europa League as a parting gift as he waves goodbye to the club he has called home for the last 22 years.
