Spurs eagerly await to find out if star midfielder will be with them for the start of next season, decision imminent


The frenzied 2-2 draw between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea was one of the ages on Monday night, though it could have wider adverse implications than first thought.

Key midfielder Mousa Dembele has accepted an FA charge relating to violent conduct, stemming from an incident where he appeared to gouge the eye of Chelsea forward Diego Costa.

In a hotly contested affair, both clubs have been charged with failing to control their players as the Blues clawed back to earn a draw at the Bridge on Monday night, putting the title of Spurs’ grasp.

Having accepted his own individual charge, the Belgian is almost certain to be banned for the last two games against Southampton and Newcastle United, as well as the first match next season.

As reported by ESPN, the 28-year old will await whether or not he will be banned for a period anywhere between five and ten games as an independent panel of three former referees review the incident.
