Chelsea striker gets a top-up from the FA


The Football Association has handed an additional one match ban to Chelsea striker Diego Costa following his reactions after being sent off in his side’s defeat to Everton in the FA Cup.

Chelsea lost the game 2-1 and crashed out of the FA Cup, but the highlight of the game was the incident involving the Spaniard and Gareth Barry.

He was given an automatic two game suspension, ruling him out of the game against West Ham and this weekend’s clash against Aston Villa.

However, following the investigation by the FA, the body released a statement that read:

“Following an independent regulatory commission hearing on Thursday (March 31, 2016), Chelsea’s Diego Costa has been given a one-match suspension, fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct.

“The forward admitted a charge of improper conduct in relation to his behaviour after he was shown a second yellow card in the FA Cup sixth-round tie on March 12, 2016 at Goodison Park.

“This suspension will follow immediately on the conclusion of the player’s current ban.”
