VIDEO - FA Cup: Diego Costa 'bite' controversy at Everton victory over Chelsea


Interim Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink will reserve judgement on the incident which saw Diego Costa appear to try to bite Everton's Gareth Barry until he has had chance to see it for himself.

The Spain international was sent off late in the 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final defeat after clashing with Barry, who was also sent off moments later for his second booking after fouling Cesc Fabregas.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez, who was grateful for two moments of brilliance from striker Romelu Lukaku before the red cards to settle an otherwise disappointing tie, played down the incident.
