Ox and Gibbs win appeals

Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will both be available for Arsenal's Premier League match with Swansea after the FA released a statement saying neither player would be banned.

Gibbs was sent off for handball by referee Andre Marriner in Saturday's game 6-0 defeat against Chelsea, despite Oxlade-Chamberlain being the player who committed the offence.

A statement on the FA website read: "An Independent Regulatory Commission today heard two claims from Arsenal, one of mistaken identity and the other of wrongful dismissal, both in relation to Saturday’s game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

"The Commission ruled that the dismissal of Kieran Gibbs was a case of mistaken identity and transferred this to his team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Subsequent to deciding this matter, the Commission then considered Arsenal’s claim for wrongful dismissal in relation to Oxlade-Chamberlain. This claim was upheld meaning Oxlade-Chamberlain will not serve any suspension with the standard punishment withdrawn with immediate effect."
