Was rescinding Son's red card the right move? (1:43)

The FC guys are at odds when it comes to the FA's decision to overturn Son Heung-Min's red card vs. Everton. (1:43)

Heung-min Son has been cleared to play in Tottenham's next three Premier League games after having a red card, issued for the challenge on Andre Gomes which led to the Everton midfielder suffering a serious ankle injury, overturned following an appeal by the club.

Son was dismissed by referee Martin Atkinson for serious foul play as a result of the incident during the second half of Sunday's 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

Gomes on Monday underwent successful surgery to repair a fracture dislocation of his right ankle sustained when he landed off balance at speed after the tackle from Son and then collided with Spurs full-back Serge Aurier.

And after submitting statements and video evidence to support their claim for wrongful dismissal, Spurs have now successfully fought to overturn the card and subsequent three-match ban for the South Korean forward.

An FA statement said: "Heung-min Son 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."

Son, meanwhile, has travelled to Serbia with Tottenham today ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Red Star Belgrade.
