“For the record, Diego did not bite me”
Barry – who was later sent off in the game – confirmed that this morning when he put out a short statement on social media.
The midfielder said: “Seen a lot of talk about the incident involving me and Diego Costa in the game last night.
“For the record, Diego did not bite me.”
Costa reacted aggressively to a challenge from Barry with six minutes to go in the game.
He stuck his head into Barry and then moved his mouth towards the England midfielder’s neck.
