Nzonzi to face City after appeal

Next Story

Stoke midfielder Steven Nzonzi will be free to face Manchester City on New Year's Day after appealing against his sending-off on Saturday.

Nzonzi was shown the red card for an alleged stamp on Southampton's Jack Cork during a thrilling 3-3 Barclays Premier League draw at the Britannia Stadium.

Potters manager Tony Pulis was angered by the decision, arguing Nzonzi did not make contact with Cork, and the Football Association have confirmed an appeal has now been lodged.
