FA overturns Rose red card

Tottenham have successfully appealed against Danny Rose's red card in Wednesday's 5-1 home defeat by Manchester City.

The defender was sent off in the second half of the Premier League clash at White Hart Lane for a tackle on City striker Edin Dzeko, which resulted in Yaya Toure scoring his side's second goal from the penalty spot.

But replays showed that Rose's boot touched the ball and the Football Association have overturned his dismissal.

An FA statement read: "Danny Rose's one-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect, after the Tottenham Hotspur player's wrongful dismissal claim was upheld by an Independent Regulatory Commission.

"Rose was dismissed in Tottenham's game against Manchester City on Wednesday 29 January 2014, for denying a goal scoring opportunity."

Rose is now free to play in Saturday's Premier League clash against Hull City at the KC Stadium.
