Marco Alonso tackle: Chelsea star facing BAN for horror challenge against Southampton

On Wednesday, Chelsea coach Antonio Conte said January signing Emerson Palmieri would be given the chance to deputise for Alonso against Burnley, with Davide Zappacosta the favourite to start at left wing-back against Southampton.

An Independent Regulatory Commission set up by the English FA has ruled against Chelsea defender, Marcos Alonso for his violent conduct against Southampton striker, Shane Long in their last weekend's Premier League game.

The 27-year-old Alonso was Chelsea's only representative in the Professional Footballers' Association Premier League team of the year that was announced Wednesday.

The Blues have struggled this season, but Alonso has been a stand-out performer with the Spain global being named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year.

Referee Mike Dean was labelled a joke and an embarrassment by Sky Sports pundits Matt Le Tissier and Dennis Wise after appearing to ignore Alonso's stamp on Long.

Saints manager Mark Hughes accused Alonso of nearly breaking Long's leg in the challenge, which happened when Chelsea were 1-0 down.

"It happened in the 43rd minute of Saturday's game [14/04/18] and was not seen by the match officials but caught on video". "They were all within a 10 to 15-metre radius-one of them should have seen it".

As a result, the Spaniard will miss the FA Cup semi-final against Southampton on Sunday and Premier League matches with Burnley and Swansea.
