The game is gone and Arsenal got nothing out of it except two harsh red cards that will mean Santi Cazorla will miss the Capital One away to Tottenham and Gabriel will miss the next two against Manchester United and Leicester.
Chelsea and their arch villain Diego Costa, meanwhile, appear to have made it off with all the points and a big cheesy grin and there is nothing we can do about it but wipe our mouths, pick ourselves up and focus on playing football.
Or maybe not. I am still hoping that the FA or Premier League step in and issue the Brazilian born Spanish striker with a retrospective red, because there are at least two clear bits of video evidence that Mike Dean and his assistants managed to miss.
Even if Costa gets off with this, I do not think it will be the end of things. Jose Mourinho has been moaning about the officials having a campaign against Chelsea, but this sort of thing is exactly why they have not been getting decisions and the refs will be all the more reluctant from now on.
The next time Costa is writhing on the floor brandishing an imaginary yellow card, I would not be surprised if it was him that was booked. All eyes will be on Costa and Chelsea, I reckon, as no one likes to be mugged off. So while there is nothing Arsenal fans can do to ease our frustrations about yesterday, I have a feeling that we will be having the last laugh on Costa and his crimes.
If that helps us to finish above the Chelsea cheats, then we might have got something out of the game after all.
