Mark Hughes slams Marcus Alonso for attempting to break Shane Long's leg

Shane Long SKY SPORTSLong was able to play on after treatment but fans were furious Alonso stayed on the pitch
Shannon Reynolds | 16 April, 2018, 14:18

With Shane Long battling Cesc Fabregas and Willian for the ball, Marcos Alonso came charging in and caught the Ireland worldwide on the calf, with the ball nowhere in the vicinity.

The Spaniard was lucky not to be given a red card in the first half at St Mary's after he went over the top of Cesc Fabregas to stamp on Long's calf.

Striker Long was forced off the field for treatment but was able to continue.

Referee Mike Dean did not punish Alonso's actions.

The Chelsea defender has faced calls to be given a retrospective three-match suspension by the Football Association.

Often these tackles appear to be made thoughtlessly, as a rush of blood or over commitment towards the ball makes the tackler lose control.

McCain said the message to Assad must be that the cost of using chemical weapons is worse than any perceived benefit. But they have refrained from targeting Assad's government, apart from a volley of US missiles a year ago .

Two X-rated tackles escaped the correct punishment on Saturday as Marcos Alonso and Ben Davies ignored any thoughts of safety for their opponents.

The referee was placed only yards away from the incident and had an unobstructed view of the situation.

That of course means the FA could charge Alonso retrospectively using video evidence.

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.

'He clearly hasn't seen it, otherwise he'd give a foul.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the defeat, Hughes said, "In the last two games against Arsenal and Chelsea, I've seen encouraging things but also things that will damage us in the coming games if we don't learn from them".
