Chelsea Left Back Marcos Alonso Meets Up With Friends For A Meal After Being Banned For Burnley Trip

Chelsea left back Marcos Alonso was all smiles at Zuma in Kensington on Thursday

Marcos Alonso made the most of his enforced lay-off by enjoying a meal with friends at Zuma in Kensington as his Chelsea team-mates prepared for the Premier League clash at Burnley.

The 27-year-old Spaniard was ruled out of Thursday’s game after he was hit with a three-match ban for violent conduct.

Alonso appeared to stand on the back of Shane Long’s calf during last Saturday’s Premier League meeting at Southampton.

He will also miss Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against the Saints as well as the league match against Swansea six days later.

An FA statement read: ‘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 yesterday’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.’

Referee Mike Dean did not even give a free-kick, despite appearing to be in a good position to view the incident.

Chelsea did not miss Alonso as they claimed a battling win at Burnley.

Victor Moses was the match-winner as Chelsea eased the pressure on London rivals Arsenal by denting Burnley’s surge for sixth place.
