Younes Kaboul: Tottenham defender's red card rescinded

Younes Kaboul

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul will be available for Sunday's north London derby against Arsenal after his red card against Chelsea was rescinded.

Kaboul, 28, was sent off after colliding with Samuel Eto'o just before the hour mark of Spurs' 4-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

An independent regulatory commission upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal.

"The player's one-match suspension has therefore been withdrawn," said a Football Association statement.

Referee Michael Oliver adjudged Kaboul tripped Eto'o to concede a penalty, which Eden Hazard converted to make it 2-0 to Chelsea.

Tottenham are fifth in the Premier League, six points adrift of third-placed Arsenal, ahead of Sunday's game at White Hart Lane.
