Son Heung-min’s red card against Everton rescinded by FA
Son Heung-min’s red card for his challenge on Andre Gomes has been rescinded by the FA. The South Korean tripped Gomes from behind in Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Everton. However, the midfielder suffered a gruesome injury after colliding with Serge Aurier in the aftermath.
Gomes suffered a dislocated fracture of the ankle and was in agony, while the medical staff provided lengthy treatment.
Martin Atkinson was going to brandish a yellow card but changed it to a red after seeing the injury. Son was inconsolable on the pitch and had to be comforted by the members from both sides, and Aurier was also substituted before play restarted.
The South Korean would have missed three Premier League games for us due to the direct red, but a statement from the FA confirmed that Son’s dismissal had been rescinded (h/t Sun):
“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 forward was sent off for serious foul play during the Premier League fixture against Everton FC on Sunday 3 November 2019.”
Spurs need Son on the pitch
Son was one of the brightest players in the draw and assisted Dele Alli for the opening goal of the game.
The 27-year-old has five goals and three assists this season and should play a part in our next Premier League game against Sheffield United.
