Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has escaped a three-match ban after the Football Association overturned his red card against West Ham at the weekend.

The 29-year-old was dismissed in the first half at Upton Park for a clash with Luis Boa Morte, although referee Peter Walton told an FA regulatory commission he and his assistant made a mistake.

The commission had to decide whether a "serious and obvious" error had been made when Lampard was sent off for no more than a push in Boa Morte´s chest.
