The red card given to Watford defender Christian Kabasele in the Carabao Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday has been overturned on appeal by the FA
Kabasele was dismissed in the 81st minute of the match for pulling down Dele Alli in the box. A straight red card was produced and Alli converted the resulting spot-kick.
The defender is yet to miss a Premier League match so far this season, will now be available for Saturday’s match against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
“Christian Kabasele’s one-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect after his wrongful dismissal claim was upheld,” said the FA in a statement, via Watford’s official website.
“The Watford player had been sent-off for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday [26/09/18].”
