Alonso has been punished for three games
Marcos Alonso will miss Chelsea’s next three games after he was punished for his dangerous entry to Shane Long. The incident occurred in the 43rd minute of the match against Southampton (2: 3), with a score of 1: 0 in favor of the hosts. The Spaniard stepped onto the attacker’s calf for a direct red card, but Chief Referee Mike Dean did not see the situation.
Two days ago, the Football Association of England formally charged Alonso. Today, his sanction was confirmed. He will miss today’s match with Burnley, the Sunday FA Cup semi-final against Southampton, and the Swansea match.
Alonso is Chelsea’s only player who fell into the Season Team, which was announced yesterday by the Association of Professional Footballers.
