Marcos Alonso will miss Chelsea‘s FA Cup semi-final against Southampton on Sunday after he was hit with a three-match ban.

Alonso was found guilty of violent conduct after planting his left boot into Shane Long’s right leg during last Saturday’s Premier League clash between the Saints and Chelsea.

As a result, Alonso will also be unavailable for Chelsea’s next two league matches — against Burnley and Swansea.

‘Marcos Alonso will miss Chelsea’s next three matches after an Independent Regulatory Commission ruled he had committed an act of violent conduct against Southampton’s Shane Long’. An FA statement read.

Alonso denied the charge and further submitted that if found proven the suspension would be excessive, however, this was rejected following yesterday’s hearing.

The incident occurred in the 43rd minute of Chelsea’s 3-2 win against Southampton on Saturday when Alonso’s challenge caught Long.
