FA overturn Spurs striker Son's red card for tackle on Everton's Gomes
Tottenham's Son Heung-min will not be suspended for the challenge which led to a serious injury for Everton's André Gomes after his red card was overturned. The South Korean forward left the field in tears when he was sent off during Sunday's 1-1 draw after the challenge left Portuguese midfielder Gomes with a broken and dislocated ankle.
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.
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.
