Dembele received a six-match ban from the FA for violent conduct during Spurs' match against Chelsea on May 2.

In a chippy match throughout, with a number of reckless challenges being tossed about by both sides, Dembele's eye poke on Diego Costa went above-and-beyond. With two matches remaining this season, Dembele is in line to miss the first four matches of next season as well. With his season now over, the holding midfielder will finish with three goals and an assist in 29 Premier League matches and was one of the key cogs that kept Spurs' defense so strong.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dembele has been charged with violent conduct by the FA on Wednesday, Sky Sports reports. An FA statement said: "It is alleged the player's behaviour constituted violent conduct in circumstances where the standard punishment of three matches that would otherwise apply is clearly insufficient."

The reason for Dembele's charge is his incident with Diego Costa after Monday's nervy derby with Chelsea, that was missed by the referee but caught on camera. He could be facing a lengthy suspension which could see him miss not only the end of this season but also a chunk of the beginning of next year. The Spurs' midfielder has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge.

Chelsea and Tottenham will have to face FA for endless scuffles during and after their game on Monday, according to the Telegraph.

One of the main incidents, alongside many others, will be Diego Costa gouged in the eye by Dembele after the game which may see the latter getting slapped with a three-match ban for violent conduct. A potential suspension may send the defensive midfielder on the sidelines for the remaining Spurs' two games.

Dembele picked up an assist on two key passes, one shot off target and one dribble in Monday's 4-0 romp over Stoke.

Another solid performance by Dembele. His terrific run with the ball into the penalty area and then smart pass back to Harry Kane opened up just enough space for the latter to unleash his masterful shot for the first goal of the game. Dembele has been an invaluable cog for the Spurs' dominant midfield but that hasn't always translated as well in his fantasy campaign. Nevertheless, with three goals and one assist in his basket and 2.9 dribbles and almost one shot average per game the potential is always there and he is as good as it gets by a holding midfielder.

Dembele (groin) has missed the last two league matches, but manager Mauricio Pochettino hopes to have him available against Arsenal on Saturday.

Dembele only has three goals on the season in his defensive midfield role. If Dembele misses out, Ryan Mason could be called upon again. Mason hasn't scored in league play since Sept. 13.

Dembele (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's match against West Ham.

Dembele's injury comes at a tough time for Spurs, who could be without Dele Alli because of an ankle injury. That being said, Dembele's fantasy upside tends to be limited given his inconsistency.

Dembele has been ruled out for Thursday's Europa League match against Fiorentina because of a groin injury he suffered during Sunday's FA Cup match against Crystal Palace.

Dembele's playing time has been inconsistent this season, though his fantasy upside is a bit limited even when he does start.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dembele scored a goal on two shots (one on target) and lined up four key passes in 79 minutes of action in the 4-1 dispatching of Sunderland on Saturday.

Dembele blasted a fantastic strike to grab his first goal since November. He was outstanding, taking a defensive midfield role, in his return in the starting lineup. The uniquely versatile midfielder can line up almost anywhere in midfield and upfront and is priceless for the young and ambitious Spurs. His versatility, though, doesn't limit his fantasy upside as even as a holding midfielder he can create chances with key passes or make runs and take shots if necessary.
