The FA today charged Chelsea striker Diego Costa with improper conduct following his behaviour after being sent off at Everton on Saturday evening.
Sent off for a second yellow card late on, Diego Costa was accused of biting Gareth Barry but the Everton midfielder rejected these claims the following day.
It’s not the first time Diego Costa has been charged by the FA and Chelsea fans on social media were rather bemused by his latest charge.
The 27-year-old striker could now face a three game ban and has also been asked by the FA to explain a gesture made to the home support at half time.
Chelsea fans noted that Gabriel got away with a disgusting two-footed challenge during Arsenal’s defeat to Watford.
Personally, this ban seems very harsh on the former Atletico Madrid man. See some tweets from angry Chelsea fans below.
Diego Costa gets charged for doing absolutely nothing wrong. The @FA, ladies and gentlemen.

Diego Costa being chased out by FA just like they chased Suarez.
Hazard being chased by media just like they did Bale.
