Marcos Alonso slapped with a 3-match ban.

Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso will miss his side’s next three matches after the Football Association ruled he committed an act of violent conduct with a challenge on Southampton striker Shane Long.TV footage showed Alonso catching Long on the calf with his studs shortly before half-time in Chelsea’s 3-2 victory at Southampton on Saturday, but referee Mike Dean and his assistants missed the incident and consequently took no action.Marco Alonso however denied the charge at a disciplinary hearing. The hosts had led 2-0 for 70 minutes, but the tide turned when substitute Olivier Giroud headed home Alonso’s pinpoint cross.An FA statement reads: “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.“Alonso denied the charge and further submitted that if found proven the suspension would be excessive, however, this was rejected following Wednesday’s hearing.”
