Diego Costa Banned for Emre Can Stamp

Diego Costa has had his appeal rejected by the English FA over his recent charge of violent conduct during the Capitol One Cup Semi-Final against Liverpool on Tuesday. He has been punished with a 3 match suspension that will go into effect immediately. Costa will miss this weekend’s potential title decider against Manchester City. He will also miss the away match against Aston Villa and the home match against Everton. Aside for the Manchester City game, Costa could not have picked a better time to get banned.

Below is the stamp Costa is being charged for. I certainly agree with the decision by the FA but many Chelsea fans are arguing against it. What are your thoughts? On purpose or accident?
