The striker's apparent stamp on the Liverpool defender was missed by match officials and reviewed on video on Wednesday.

Costa has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge, but faces no action for a similar incident involving Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel later in the match.

Liverpool have announced the departure of midfielder Suso to AC Milan.

The 21-year-old Spaniard has failed to make a serious impact at Anfield since joining from Cadiz in 2011.

He made just 21 appearances in that time, scoring his only goal against Middlesbrough earlier this season.

A short statement from Liverpool read: "Everybody at Liverpool thanks Suso for his contribution and wishes him all the best for the future."

A former detective has told a court how he swore at a colleague to stop him from taking photographs of fans at Hillsborough.

But the inquests in Warrington have heard that a reference to the conversation was removed from former officer Michael Tissington's witness statement.

He said he was told that the images were being taken on the request of an Assistant Chief Constable of South Yorkshire Police.

The witness said there was some verbal abuse from supporters after bodies had been removed from the adjoining pen but added that he "would have probably been in the same state".

Mr Tissington said he told the scenes of crime officer, dressed in civilian clothes, that he was making the situation worse and that he would get them all lynched.
