Duo to learn Carling Cup final appeal fate

Arsenal will find out later today whether they will lose a second key man to a three-match suspension.

Striker Emmanuel Adebayor has, along with Chelsea's Mikel John Obi, lodged an appeal with the Football Association for wrongful dismissal in the hope of having a red card in the Carling Cup final rescinded.

However, Gunners skipper Kolo Toure - who was also sent off for his part in the mass brawl at the end of Sunday's match at the Millennium Stadium - has not, and so will automatically serve a ban.

Under the FA's fast-track disciplinary process, the appeals will be held today, meaning a decision will come ahead of Arsenal's FA Cup fourth-round replay at Blackburn tomorrow night.

Ivory Coast defender Toure, however, will definitely miss that game, along with the Barclays Premiership visit of Reading on Saturday and then Aston Villa.

He will be available for the Champions League second leg against PSV Eindhoven next Wednesday, which is a UEFA competition.

The melee at the Millennium Stadium was sparked following a confrontation between Mikel and Toure, with players and coaches from both sides becoming involved.

Adebayor protested his innocence, and while he may have a case for mistaken identity given the actions of full-back Emmanuel Eboue in his clash with Chelsea's Wayne Bridge, the Togo striker could yet face further sanctions for the way in which he both confronted referee Howard Webb and refused to immediately leave the pitch.

'I saw a lot of people getting angry and when I first got there it was to stop people and bring [the situation] down. It was a final and I did not want a lot of people to get involved,' said Adebayor, a second-half substitute on Sunday.

'When the referee showed me a red card I could not believe it.

'I remember straight away [Arsenal physio] Gary Lewin came to me to say `come on Manu, let's go,' but I said, `just leave me to me ask one question - why did he give me a red card?'

'A lot of people thought I was going to hit him, but I was not.'

Adebayor, 21, added: 'I think it is very important for me [to appeal] because I did not do anything wrong.

'I did not hit anybody, but he gave me a red card.'

At the very least, both clubs seem sure to find themselves in trouble for failing to control their players, with Eboue also in line for a potential charge if Webb either admits to missing the punch altogether or acknowledges he got the wrong man.

The brawl, which saw as many players dismissed in one minute as in the 46 previous finals altogether, completely overshadowed a pulsating contest, which also featured Chelsea skipper John Terry being stretchered off after being kicked in the head by Abou Diaby as the Blues prevailed 2-1.
