Everton have succeeded in an appeal against midfielder Darron Gibson's red card in last Saturday's match at West Ham.

Gibson was dismissed by referee Anthony Taylor in a game that also saw West Ham striker Carlton Cole sent off for a challenge on Leighton Baines.

Cole has also seen West Ham's appeal over his red card upheld by the Football Association.

A statement from the FA said: "The FA can confirm that red cards shown to both Carlton Cole and Darron Gibson have been rescinded.

"Both players were sent from the field of play in the Premier League fixture between West Ham United and Everton at Upton Park on Saturday 22 December.

"Their three-match suspensions have been withdrawn immediately and written reasons will be provided at a later date."
