Marcos Alonso: Banned Chelsea Defender To Miss FA Cup Semi-Final

Marcos Alonso of Chelsea celebrates with Alvaro Morata of Chelsea after scoring his sides second goal during the Premier League match between Arsenal and Chelsea at Emirates Stadium on January 3, 2018 in London, England.

The left-wing back collided with Southampton's Shane Long during Chelsea's 3-2 win over the Saints on Saturday but managed to avoid being booked by the referee during the match, but after the match reports revealed that FA will ban the Spanish global.

SOUTHAMPTON boss Mark Hughes is happy the Football Association charged Chelsea's Marcos Alonso with violent conduct after his controversial challenge on Shane Long.

Referee Mike Dean did not book Alonso for the incident, which happened directly in front of fourth official Roger East with the FA confirming that none of the match officials saw the incident which was caught on camera.




Since then Alonso has received a retrospective charge from the English FA and although the Spanish left back appealed the decision and the length of the ban, it was upheld and he will now miss Chelsea's next three games.

Whilst losing Alonso, who has been one of Chelsea's better players this season and was included in the PFA Team of the Year, is a blow for Antonio Conte and his team, Emerson Palmieri's credentials will be put to the test.

The Spaniard will now miss Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against the same opponents at Wembley, plus Premier League matches at Burnley on Thursday and Swansea on 28 April.
