EPL: Chelsea's Marcos Alonso faces three-game ban after alleged violent conduct

The Blues wing-back appeared to stand on the back of Southampton forward Long's calf.

The incident in the first half of Saturday's match at St. Mary's was not seen by the referee but was caught on video and Alonso has been charged retrospectively.

If he accepts the charge, the FA Cup semi-final tie would be the second of a three-game ban for him with Chelsea playing at Burnley and Swansea in the League either side of that match.

Marcos Alonso has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association following his challenge on Shane Long during Chelsea's 3-2 win at Southampton on Saturday.

"Each panel member will review the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence".

Arrest Last Night at Massachusetts Avenue and Waterhouse - Police Department
According to MassLive, "officers can be seen repeatedly punching Ohene while bystanders shouted at police". Around 9 p.m. on Friday, a woman called 911 to say Selorm Ohene , 21, had thrown his clothes in her face.

Alonso has until 6 p.m. local time on Wednesday to respond to the charge, and it may be that he fights the accusation in an attempt to feature at Wembley at the very least this weekend.

The Blues are now seven points behind rivals Tottenham, who play Brighton on Tuesday evening, and their remaining Premier League fixtures are against Burnley, Swansea, Liverpool, Huddersfield and Newcastle.

Southampton boss Mark Hughes condemned the tackle at the time, saying it should have resulted in a red card.

"The disappointment was the officials didn't see it".
