Tottenham have won their red cad appeal for Danny Rose's dismissal against Manchester City.

The red card handed to Rose for a foul on Edin Dzeko has been overturned, the Football Association has announced.

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.

An FA statement read: "Danny Rose's one-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect after the Tottenham player's wrongful dismissal claim was upheld by an Independent Regulatory Commission.

"Rose was dismissed in Tottenham's game against Manchester City on Wednesday for denying a goalscoring opportunity."
