Confirmed: Spurs star Mousa Dembele handed huge ban after clash with Chelsea’s Diego Costa

A statement from the FA read: “Mousa Dembele will serve a six-match suspension with immediate effect after he committed an act of violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.”

The FA, when charging Dembele, had said it considered the incident to be serious enough that ‘the standard punishment of three matches would be clearly insufficient’.

And now Dembele will miss Spurs’ remaining matches this Premier League season – at home to Southampton on Sunday and at Newcastle a week later – and the first four fixtures of next term.
