Referee Mike Dean appeared to have a clear view of Alonso's challenge.

According to the Daily Mail, FA Chiefs are still investigating the challenge and are reviewing footage of the incident.

The Spain global stood on Long's calf in the first half of Chelsea's 3-2 win over Southampton at St Mary's in the Premier League at the weekend.

A statement from the FA reads: "Chelsea's Marcos Alonso has been charged with violent conduct following an incident with Southampton's Shane Long".

However, the FA subsequently hit Alonso with a violent conduct charge after confirming that neither of the match officials had seen the tackle, which was caught on video.

The Football Association is looking into Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso's tackle on Shane Long in his side's 3-2 win at Southampton on Saturday.

The 27-year-old Spanish worldwide has now been told to respond until 6 pm on Wednesday, April 18, or face severe effect.

Alonso is facing a three-match ban if he accepts the charge, which would rule him out of Sunday's FA Cup semi-final, also against Southampton, and Premier League games against Burnley, on Thursday, and Swansea.

"The disappointment was the officials didn't see it, they were all within a 10 to 15 metre radius".
