Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been banned for three matches for violent conduct following an incident in Saturday's 2-0 win against Arsenal, the Football Association has announced.
As the game approached half-time, Costa appeared to twice rake his.......
hands across Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny's face before chest-bumping him to the ground.
Arsenal defender Gabriel then came over to defend his teammate, and he and Costa received yellow cards following a confrontation. A minute later, the Arsenal centre-back was sent off for flicking a boot at the Chelsea player.
However, the FA has decided that Gabriel's red card will be revoked, while Costa will face a three-match ban, having denied a Football Association charge over the Koscielny incident, which was not seen by referee Mike Dean.
Drop a comment.....thanks!
