Huge West Ham boost as Kouyate’s red card is rescinded – he’ll be able to face Arsenal

5 Apr

“The player will not serve any suspension”

FA statement

“The player, who was dismissed for serious foul play during the game against Crystal Palace on Saturday [2 April 2016], will therefore not serve any suspension.”

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic had initially hinted the club would not contest Kouyate’s sending-off despite saying the challenge on Palace substitute Dwight Gayle was not even worthy of a yellow card.

He cut a frustrated figure after the 10 men were pegged back by Gayle’s equaliser, denting their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League, saying: “Will we appeal? I am fed up with appealing.”
