Dele Alli will miss the rest of Tottenham Hotspur season after being slapped with a three-match ban by the Football Association (FA) for violent conduct.

The Spurs midfielder, who won the PFA Young Footballer of the Year, was charged by the FA for violent conduct after punching Claudio Yacob in the stomach during Monday's match with West Bromwich Albion.

Alli will not play competitively now until he features for England ahead of the European Championships in France.
