Tottenham defender Danny Rose sending off is overturned by FA

The red card handed to Tottenham defender Danny Rose for a foul on Edin Dzeko has been overturned.

Rose was given a straight red for a tackle on Dzeko inside the home penalty box during Tottenham's 5-1 defeat to Manchester City at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.

Replays showed Rose clearly made contact with the ball, but a penalty was awarded by referee Andre Marriner after his assistant Scott Ledger flagged for a foul.

After studying replays of the incident, the FA has decided to rescind the red card. Rose will be available to play in Spurs' away game at Hull today.

An FA statement read: "Danny Rose's one-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect after the Tottenham player's wrongful dismissal claim was upheld by an Independent Regulatory Commission."
