Marcos Alonso's Yellow Card In The 94th Minute vs Southampton Is Causing Huge Debate
| Last updated
Ahead of Saturday afternoon's game against Southampton, Chelsea trio Marcos Alonso, Alvaro Morata and Antonio Rudiger were one caution away from a one match suspension.
To be clear, if any of the above happened to get booked, they would happen to miss Wednesday night's game against Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup.
Please note that the deadline for five bookings to be removed takes place a week today on December 23, 2017.
Now let's talk about Marcos Alonso's yellow card in the 94th minute.
Many have taken to social media to voice their opinion after Chelsea defender Alonso received a yellow card for time wasting, with many stating that the Spaniard did it 'deliberately' to avoid a potential Premier League ban.
Last month, Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal was given a one-match suspension by UEFA after some shady play against APOEL Nicosia a couple of weeks back.
In the 6-0 away win over the Cypriot outfit, Carvajal took an awfully long time to take a throw-in late in the game. Clearly, he was deliberately time-wasting to try to get a yellow card so that he would be suspended against Borussia Dortmund.
So will Alonso get the same treatment?
That Alonso yellow card for time wasting isn't delebrate?!- Tauseef (@MisterManUtd) December 16, 2017
He'll miss the Cup game and will be back for the PL games.
Scenes if a United player did that...
Should Alonso be punished for his actions? Was it deliberate?
