Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli set to miss rest of season after accepting FA violent conduct charge
The England international appeared to punch Claudio Yacob during Monday’s draw with West Brom and is set to be handed a three-game ban
The England international was charged earlier this week after appearing to punch Claudio Yacob during Monday night’s draw with West Brom.
The incident came just 24 hours after Alli was crowned PFA Young Player of the Year following a stunning breakthrough campaign.
An FA Independent Commission is set to convene on Thursday or Friday with a decision made before this weekend’s action – which sees Spurs travel to Chelsea on Monday night.
He is expected to face a three-match suspension if found guilty, ruling him out for the remainder of the campaign.
