Marcos Alonso will serve a three-match ban following a charge of violent conduct

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.

The incident, which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video, occurred in the 43rd minute of Saturday’s game [14/04/18].
