 Son Heung-Min of Tottenham Red card overturned 


After a challenge that left Everton midfielder Andre Gomes in the 1-1 draw on Sunday, Son was sent off with a broken and dislocated ankle.
Nevertheless, Tottenham appealed against the decision of referee Martin Atkinson and the FA upheld their case, ensuring that he is not going to serve a three-match ban.


The statement of the FA read: "Heung-min Son will be available for the next three domestic fixtures of Tottenham Hotspur FC after a claim of wrongful dismissal was upheld by an independent regulatory commission.

During the Premier League fixture against Everton on Sunday, November 3, 2019, the forward was sent off for serious foul play. "Despite his participation in the incident, South Korea international received support from his club.
After seeing the extent of Gomes ' injury, he was visibly distracted and was inconsolable after the match.

That led to some uncertainty as to whether he would fly with Spurs to compete against Red Star Belgrade for their crucial Champions League match, but he was part of the group that left Stansted Airport on Tuesday.

Spurs manager Pochettino said that after Sunday's game, Son was in a better frame of mind.
He said: "He's OK. He's been devastated after the action. It's been a mix of all. He's in a very good way after a few days."
