Heung-Min Son was sent off via VAR after kicking out at Antonio Rudiger in the second half of Tottenham’s clash with Chelsea on Sunday.
Son was caught by Rudiger and while he was on the floor he flicked his leg at Chelsea’s German defender and caught him in the stomach.
The violent conduct charge means Son will miss Tottenham’s next three games in the Premier League against Brighton, Norwich and Southampton unless they appeal and it is successful.
Son had a red card rescinded earlier this season after being sent off for a tackle on Everton’s Andre Gomes but this was more malicious and his reaction cost him and Spurs dear.
