Diego Costa will be unavailable for Chelsea’s trip to Swansea next weekend, after the Football Association (FA), extended his ban by one game.

The Spain international was charged with improper conduct, after his dismissal during the Blues’ 2-0 loss to Everton in the FA Cup last month.

He was initially given a two-match suspension and he missed the 2-2 draw at home with West Ham. However, he will now miss Saturday’s clash against Aston Villa and the trip to the Liberty Stadium too.

Costa was also been fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct.

A statement released by the FA read: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Thursday (31 March 2016), Chelsea’s Diego Costa has been given a one-match suspension, fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct.

“The forward admitted a charge of improper conduct in relation to his behaviour after he was shown a second yellow card in The FA Cup Sixth Round tie on 12 March 2016 at Goodison Park.

“This suspension will follow immediately on the conclusion of the player’s current ban.”
