Kompany wins appeal against red card

The red card Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany received against Arsenal on Sunday has been rescinded.

• Marcotti's Monday Musings

Kompany, 26, was dismissed in the 75th minute of City's 2-0 win over Arsenal after referee Mike Dean deemed his challenge on Jack Wilshere to be a red card offence.

City boss Roberto Mancini confirmed after the game the club's intention to appeal the decision, as the Belgian faced a three-match suspension.

The Premier League champions have been successful with their appeal, meaning Kompany is available for selection versus Fulham this weekend.

A statement on the FA's website read: "An Independent Regulatory Commission has today upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal regarding Manchester City's Vincent Kompany.

"The defender was dismissed for serious foul play during his side's match against Arsenal on Sunday 13 January 2013. As a result, Kompany's three-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect."

Kompany was sent off for a similar offence last season after he went in two-footed on Nani during City's 3-2 loss to United in the FA Cup.
