Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso charged with violent conduct

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has been charged retrospectively with violent conduct by the English FA for his challenge on Southampton striker Shane Long during Saturday's Premier League match.

The 27-year-old Spaniard appeared to stand on the back of Long's calf in the first half as Chelsea came back from two goals down to win 3-2 at St Mary's Stadium.

Alonso has until 1800 BST on Wednesday to respond and could miss Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Southampton if the charge is upheld.
