Costa Found Guilty

advert

The FA has chosen to take action against both Diego Costa and Gabriel Paulista following Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday.

Costa appeared to aim a swipe at Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny, which was not seen by the referee, while Gabriel was later sent off for kicking out at the Chelsea striker during the Premier League fixture.

The FA, having had time to review the incident, has chosen to charge Costa with violent conduct, while it has also charged Gabriel with improper conduct for his behaviour following his sending off by the referee.

Diego-Costa-pushes-Laurent-Koscielny

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla, who was sent off for two yellow card offences, has been warned about his future behaviour.

The FA announced in a statement: “Diego Costa has been charged for an alleged act of violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video. The Chelsea forward was involved in an incident with Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny in the 43rd minute of the game. He has until 6pm tomorrow [Tuesday 22 September 2015] to reply.

“Off the ball incidents which are not seen at the time by the match officials are referred to a panel of three former elite referees. Each referee panel member will review the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence. For retrospective action to be taken, and an FA charge to follow, the decision by the panel must be unanimous.

“Arsenal defender Gabriel has been charged with improper conduct for his behaviour following his dismissal, whilst team-mate Santi Cazorla has been warned for his behaviour following his sending off.”

Meanwhile, the FA has also confirmed that it is charging both Chelsea and Arsenal for failing to properly control their players during the match.

Both clubs have been given until Thursday to respond, while Gabriel has the same time frame in which to lodge his response to the charge levelled in his direction.

The FA said: “Finally, both clubs have been charged for failing to control their players under FA Rule E20.

“Both clubs and Gabriel have until 6pm on Thursday [24 September 2015] to reply.”

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I needed to send you the little bit of remark to give many thanks yet again regarding the splendid tricks you’ve documented at this time.
    It’s so remarkably generous with you to offer publicly just what many of
    us would have offered for sale as an electronic book to earn some profit on their own, most notably seeing that you might well have tried it if you decided.
    Those solutions as well worked to be a easy way to recognize that the rest have the same passion just like my
    own to see a great deal more with respect to this problem.
    I am certain there are a lot more pleasurable opportunities in the future for
    folks who go through your blog.

    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth
    enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web
    will be much more useful than ever before.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!

    My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it
