Younes Kaboul wins red card appeal

The Football Association have upheld Younes Kaboul's appeal against the red card he received in Tottenham's 4-0 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday.

Kaboul was sent off shortly after Eto'o had scored the opening goal.

• Fitch: Summer of defensive decisions

Kaboul, 28, was sent off for a foul Samuel Eto'o in the penalty area in the 59th-minute of the Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge. Eden Hazard scored the spot-kick, leaving Spurs two goals and a man down.

He was due to be suspended for Sunday's North London derby against Arsenal at White Hart Lane, but now the FA have rescinded the ban.

A statement on the FA's website read: "Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, a claim of wrongful dismissal concerning Tottenham Hotspur’s Younes Kaboul was upheld.

"Kaboul was dismissed for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity during the game against Chelsea on 8 March 2014.

"The player’s one-match suspension has therefore been withdrawn with immediate effect."
