Alonso appeared to stamp on Southampton and Republic of Ireland striker Shane Long's calf during the first half of their Premier League clash on Saturday, a match in which Chelsea recovered from a two-goal deficit to win 3-2.

Chelsea wing back Marcos Alonso has been retroactively charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

However, the FA have taken matters into their own hands and have charged Alonso with violent conduct meaning he is likely to miss some crucial fixtures in Chelsea's late charge for a spot in the top four.

Alonso has until 6pm tonight to respond to a charge which typically carries a sanction of a three-match ban.

"It happened in the 43rd minute of Saturday's game [14/04/18] and was not seen by the match officials but caught on video".

The incident was not seen by the match officials but the FA have chose to take retrospective action after reviewing footage.

It would rule him out of Premier League games at Burnley and Swansea, either side of the FA Cup semi-final against Southampton, at Wembley on Sunday.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes was unhappy Alonso was not sent off for the challenge.

"Each panel member will review the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence", the FA said in a statement today.
