Chelsea's Marcos Alonso Somehow Avoids Punishment For Vicious Challenge On Shale Long

  • Premier League: Mark Hughes slams Marcus Alonso for attempting to break Shane Long's leg

However, Chelsea were lucky to finish the first-half with 11 men still on the pitch after Marcos Alonso launched a pretty appalling challenge on Shane Long.

The wing-back escaped without punishment at St Mary's after stamping on the back of Long's leg, despite referee Mike Dean being just metres from the incident.

The Southampton forward was forced off the field for treatment but was able to continue.

Typically these tackles look like made thoughtlessly, as a rush of blood or over dedication in direction of the ball makes the tackler lose management.

Hughes said: "It's the key moments in games where you just need to be a bit resolute, when you've just got to clear your head a little bit more quickly and get something out of games that you deserve to get something out of".

However, if Dean writes in his match-report that he did not see the incident in question, the FA have the option to charge Alonso for violent conduct.

If Alonso does find himself fingered by the authorities for the challenge, he could well miss next weekend's FA Cup semi with none other than Southampton.

Thankfully Lengthy wasn't severely injured however as there was no chance or obvious intention to play the ball it was a transparent crimson card offence.

If he sees hit, he's going to give it.

'This is a joke by Mike Dean, he's turned a blind eye to it, ' former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise told Sky Sports.

"I understand they make mistakes, but this is a shocking challenge".

'He [Alonso] hasn't even bothered with the ball'.
