Justice being served looks like the best way to put this but i doubt if Chelsea, and Chelsea fans see it that way.
Chelsea forward Diego Costa will miss Chelsea’s next three domestic matches after a FA charge of violent conduct was upheld. Costa denied the charge, relating to an incident involving Laurent Koscielny during Saturday’s 2-0 win over Arsenal.
Costa, 26, put his hands in Koscielny’s face before clashing with Gabriel, who was sent off in the match while Diego found a way to stay in the match. A lot of people have questioned the referee for the bad officiating and i am sure that was what drew the attention of the FA to looking at the match tapes.
Meanwhile, Arsenal’s appeal against defender Gabriel’s red card during Saturday’s defeat by Chelsea has been successful. Gabriel, who was sent off by referee Mike Dean for violent conduct after a clash with Diego Costa during the Blues’ 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge will now not serve a three-match suspension.
Though, Gabriel is still subject to a separate Football Association charge of improper conduct to which he has until 18:00 BST on Thursday to respond.
Oya what do you think, Is the FA’s action justified? Reversing Gabriel’s Red Card and giving Costa a 3 match Ban?
