West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble hopes that the FA will overturn the red card that Andy Carroll received against Swansea City.

West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble has called on the Football Association to overturn the red card that Andy Carroll received against Swansea City at the weekend.

The striker was sent off after tussling with Swansea defender Chico Flores during the Hammers' 2-0 win at Upton Park in the Premier League on Saturday.

However, replays showed that Chico played a part in Carroll's dismissal by over-reacting to the incident.

"Hopefully we get justice in Andy's decision being overturned," Noble told the club's official website.

"[Swansea boss] Michael Laudrup has come out on TV and said it wasn't a sending-off, so that's good honesty from the man."

West Ham continue their Premier League campaign on Saturday when they make the trip to Aston Villa.
