Arsenal defender Gabriel has been handed a one-match ban by the Football Association after accepting a charge of improper conduct.

The 24-year-old made headlines last weekend after clashing with Diego Costa and picking up a red card for kicking out at the Chelsea forward in the Gunners’ ill-tempered 2-0 defeat.

The FA announced on Tuesday it had accepted Arsenal’s challenge to referee Mike Dean’s decision and withdrawn the three-match suspension, but the Brazilian defender has not escaped all punishment.
