Diego Costa hit by FA charge: Chelsea striker also asked to explain Everton gesture

14 Mar

“He has until 6pm on Thursday 17 March 2016 to respond to the charge.

“Meanwhile, the Chelsea striker has until Wednesday [16 March 2016] to provide his observations to The FA in relation to an alleged gesture he made towards Everton supporters while leaving the pitch at half-time.”

There will be no action against Costa though for appearing to bite Barry in the neck after reacting furiously to a challenge from the midfielder.

Barry, who was also sent off, said: “For the record, Diego did not bite me.”
