The English Football Association has handed Tottenham’s Dele Alli a three-match suspension for the punch (seen above) Alli threw into Claudio Yacob’s gut in the first half of Spurs’ 1-1 draw against West Brom on Monday.

Alli has apologized for his behavior on Twitter:

With only three games left in the season, this means Tottenham will close their campaign without Alli, who has been one of their best players. Spurs’ title chances were already small after the West Brom draw—they would basically need to win all of their remaining games while hoping Leicester can’t take three points from their final three matches; without Alli, those chances are even slimmer.
