Marcos Alonso has been banned for three games following a challenge on Shane Long

Marcos Alonso will miss Chelsea's next three matches after an Independent Regulatory Commission ruled he committed an act of violent conduct against Southampton's Shane Long.
The incident occurred in the 43rd minute of Chelsea's 3-2 win against Southampton on Saturday when Alonso's challenge caught 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 ban rules him out of Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Southampton and the Premier League games against Burnley on Thursday, live on Sky Sports, and Swansea on April 28.
Referee Mike Dean did not book Alonso for the incident, which happened directly in front of fourth official Roger East. The FA confirmed neither match official saw the incident, which was caught on video.
