Feghouli red card rescinded

A Football Association Regulatory Commission has upheld West Ham United’s claim for wrongful dismissal in respect of the red card shown to Sofiane Feghouli against Manchester United.

The midfielder was sent-off during the first half of the Hammers’ 2-0 Premier League defeat by the Red Devils at London Stadium on Monday 2 January, with the game goalless at the time.

However, the Club’s successful claim means Feghouli’s three-match suspension is withdrawn.

The Algerian is therefore eligible to play against Manchester City in the Emirates FA Cup third round on Friday evening and in the following Premier League fixtures with Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough.
