Diego Costa and controversies are never far away from each other. The fiery striker was in middle of a BITING incident with Gareth Barry in Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat against Everton.

Costa was rattled with a crunching tackle from Barry, which brought out Spaniard’s vile nature as he lashed on to the Everton man.

After exchanging few headbutt rounds, Costa appeared to have dug deep on Barry’s neck and use his teeth, and that can be only one thing – BITING. Take a look at the video footage below to confirm Costa’s acts on Barry:

Following the incident, twittersphere was filled with fans damning the acts of Chelsea striker. Most of them were his own fans, who seem to have run out of patience with him. Ever since his arrival in the league, he has been controversy’s favorite child.

His brawl against Per Mertesacker and Gabriel brought shame to the club and tonight he took it too far. FA have been strict on the biting issues, we have previously seen Luis Suarez get banned for 10 games for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic back in 2014.

Costa’s acts were nothing different, as he used his teeth and he is expected to get a ban as well. How long would it be? That depends on FA and how they see the incident following referee Mike Oliver’s post match report.

Take a look at some of the tweets following Costa’s bite on Everton star Gareth Barry:
