Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul has had his red card rescinded after a successful appeal by his club, according to the FA website.

The Spurs defender was sent off for fouling Samuel Eto'o in the penalty area against Chelsea on Saturday but replays appeared to show little contact between the two.

To make matters worse Eden Hazard converted the penalty and Spurs had to play the rest of the match 2-0 down and with 10 men.

Tottenham lodged an appeal of wrongful dismissal which was successfully upheld by an Independent Regulatory Commission which makes Kaboul available for selection in their next league match.

Tottenham host Arsenal in the Premier League at White Hart Lane this Sunday with both teams desperate for three points.

Spurs must win to have any chance of getting Champions League football next season and Arsenal need to win to keep their slimming title chance hopes alive.
