Former Tottenam Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has stated that Chelsea striker Diego Costa does not deserve a retrospective ban for his behaviour in the Blues’ 2-0 victory against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Spanish international headlined the London Derby with his usual antics while Chelsea defeated Arsenal 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. The striker was involved in a scuffle with Gunners defender Gabriel but escaped with a yellow card while the Brazilian centre back was sent off by referee Mike Dean.

But replays show that Diego Costa got away with striking Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny twice and Arsene Wenger urged FA to investigate on the matter.

Costa could yet be punished if the FA decide that Dean’s match report needs to be placed under greater scrutiny by a video panel on Monday but Redknapp is adamant that the striker’s actions are not worthy of a ban.

But the experienced English manager also insisted that Diego Costa will not get away like this if he contiues to do such things on the pitch and should be careful.

“The other referees all talk to each other, they will have seen what he did and they will be looking at him. He will have to be very careful.”

Costa was imposed a ban by FA last season for stamping on Liverpool midfielder Emre Can and could face similar suspensions again.
