Chelsea striker Diego Costa could face retrospective action despite denying accusations of biting Evertons Gareth Barry during Saturdays FA Cup quarter-final at Goodison Park. The Spain international was shown a yellow card early on in a 2-0 defeat for a foul on Barry and in the 84th minute, the pair clashed again after Costa retaliated to a challenge by the former England international.Costa pushed his face into Barrys neck and motioned as if to bite, but appeared to withdraw at the last moment and then embraced his opponent, who did not react. Referee Michael Oliver pulled out a second yellow card, followed by a red, as the Brazilian-born forward was sent off for the first time in his Stamford Bridge career.Costas denial, and an admission of regret, came late on Saturday through a Chelsea statement, which read: Diego spoke to club officials after the game and expressed regret over his reaction to the challenge from Gareth Barry that led to his red card, but Diego was also very clear that he did not bite him at any point during that altercation.Barry was dismissed minutes later for a second booking in a separate incident. Costa (c) is shown a red card by referee Michael Oliver during the English The FA is waiting on a report from Oliver, who was confronted by Costa when he sent the player off, but officials have told Sky Sports News HQ they are aware of the incident and are looking into it.Oliver will submit his match report within the next 24 hours and any decision to charge Costa would be made by the FA on Monday.Guus Hiddink and Roberto Martinez both shrugged off questions about the altercation at their post-match news conferences. Costa and Seamus Coleman compete for the ball I try to be fair in my judgement, I havent seen it and it is difficult for me to say yes or no, said Hiddink. Without seeing, I dont want to give judgement on this.(Costa) was chased a bit in the game. They went after him. They knew it. It is within the rules.As a referee, you must protect the situation but knowing and feeling the atmosphere - then comes the moment that I would like to give judgement (on) but I havent seen it.Hiddink was asked whether Costa should seek help for anger management and jokingly made reference to the 2003 film of the same name. Costa (1st L) of Chelsea walks off the pitch past Hiddink (2nd L) after the red card There are movies about that, I think, the Dutchman added. One movie with Jack Nicholson. Maybe we go and watch it together.I like him still going towards the edge but you also have to take into consideration he was desperate to play today.It would have been better to rest him but it is not the type of game you rest players.It is all the combination; not fully physically fit and all the provocations and he has to take responsibility for the incident.Everton manager Roberto Martinez, who was grateful to two moments of brilliance from striker Romelu Lukaku before the red cards to settle an otherwise disappointing tie, played down the incident. Everton manager Roberto Martinez felt the referee was right to send off Costa and Gareth Barry My interpretation is I dont think it was a key moment. It was an emotional game and rightly so, said Martinez.Diego Costa had a fighting spirit and I would like to praise the referee. The sending-off of Costa was right.The sending-off of Gareth Barry was right and the referee never allowed those emotions to stop the fluency.Whatever happens with Diego Costa, I am sure the two players shook it off. From where it was, he moved his head towards Gareth Barry and I lost sight of that action.I thought it was a second yellow. It was a moment that didnt have an impact on the scoreline.Martinez rejected the suggestion his players had targeted Costa.It is part of trying to do an interpretation as you want, he added.We matched each other well. None of my players fell into the focus of losing the game.

LOS ANGELES -- Drew Doughty and Anze Kopitar scored power-play goals, Jonathan Quick made 17 saves in his sixth shutout of the season, and the Los Angeles Kings clinched a playoff spot with a 4-0 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Wednesday night. Kopitar, Jeff Carter and rookie Tanner Pearson each had a goal and an assist for the surging Kings, who have all but locked up third place in the Pacific Division and a first-round post-season matchup with California rivals San Jose or Anaheim. Thomas Greiss stopped 28 shots for the Coyotes, whose playoff hopes have been hurt by three straight losses. Phoenix and Dallas are even in eighth place in the Western Conference with 85 points apiece, but the Stars have seven games still to play -- two more than the Coyotes. Phoenix hadnt been shut out since a 2-0 loss to Columbus on Jan. 2, but the Coyotes managed few good chances against Quick and the Kings formidable defence. Quicks shutout was the 31st of his career, leaving him one shy of tying Rogie Vachons franchise record. Quick, whose six shutouts are second-most in the NHL behind Bostons Tuukka Rask, passed Vachon to become the winningest goalie in Kings history last month. Pearson scored his third career goal and Alec Martinez had two assists for the Kings, who had lost three straight to Phoenix. Los Angeles has been outstanding since the Olympic break, winning 14 of 18 on the way to its fifth consecutive playoff berth. The Kings have won seven of eight oover the past two weeks, solidifying their post-season plans after a prolonged skid before the break.dddddddddddd. Los Angeles took the lead just 1:20 after the opening faceoff when Jeff Carter feathered a beautiful cross-ice pass to Pearson, who dropped to one knee to take the shot. Pearson, the Kings first-round pick in 2012, has earned a regular lineup spot after just 22 games in his rookie season. Doughty scored early in the second period, putting a shot behind Carters moving screen. The two-time, gold medal-winning defenceman played an outstanding two-way game, passing and shooting with the formidable skill showcased while playing for Canada in Sochi. Carter scored on an end-to-end rush midway through the third period, forcing a turnover and blowing a shot past Greiss. Kopitar scored his 25th goal of the season 40 seconds later on a vicious one-timer, giving the Slovenian centre six 25-goal seasons in his career. Los Angeles (45-26-6) needs one more victory to match the franchise record of 46, done three times previously. The Kings, who have won eight straight road games, visit the Shark Tank on Thursday night to open a four-game trip. NOTES: C Martin Hanzal went to the Phoenix dressing room for several minutes in the first period after getting hurt by an elbow from Jordan Nolan, who received a minor penalty. ... Martinez has 14 points in his last 16 games. ... Greiss made his fifth straight start in place of Mike Smith, who has an injured right knee.
