Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele has been banned for six games by the FA for violent conduct against Chelsea’s Diego Costa.
Belgium international Dembele appeared to eye-gouge forward Costa during Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Monday.
Referee Mark Clattenburg did not punish the 28-year-old during the game.
Dembele chose not to contest the charge, and will now be unavailable to manager Mauricio Pochettino until Spurs’ fourth game of next season.
