Spurs Appeal Against Son Red Card Upheld

Share This:

Tottenham Hotspur have successfully appealed against a red card shown to Son Heung-min for a tackle that led to Everton midfielder Andre Gomes breaking his ankle, so the Spurs striker can play in his side’s next three games, the FA said on Tuesday.

Gomes suffered a fracture dislocation to his right ankle in the second half of Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Goodison Park when he landed off balance at speed after the tackle from Son and then collided with Spurs full-back Serge Aurier.

Referee Martin Atkinson initially showed a yellow card but then produced a red card – an automatic three-match ban – after a VAR intervention, with the Premier League stating Son had endangered Gomes’ safety with his initial challenge.

“Son Heung-min will be available for Tottenham Hotspur FC’s next three domestic fixtures after an independent Regulatory Commission upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal,” the FA said in a statement.

Portugal international Gomes had surgery on Monday, and Everton said afterwards he was expected to make a full recovery.

Spurs’ next domestic fixture is a Premier League home game on Saturday against Sheffield United.
