EPL: FA Hands Diego Costa 3-Match Ban

share on:

Chelsea’s Diego Costa has been handed a 3-match ban by the FA for a stamp on Emre Can.

A statement by the FA read:

Diego Costa will serve a three-match suspension with immediate effect after a charge of violent conduct against him was found proven by an Independent Regulatory Commission on Friday 30 January 2015.

The Chelsea forward had denied the charge in relation to an on-field incident involving Liverpool’s Emre Can which occurred in the 12th minute of the League Cup semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday 27 January 2015.

The incident was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.

The ban means Chelsea will be without Costa and midfield playmaker Cesc Fabregas when they face Manchester City this weekend.
