The red card handed to Everton's Jack Rodwell during Saturday's Merseyside derby has been rescinded following an appeal.

Everton's Jack Rodwell has had the red card he received during Saturday's Merseyside derby rescinded after his club lodged an appeal with the Football Association.

The midfielder was handed his marching orders by referee Martin Atkinson for a challenge on Liverpool striker Luis Suarez during the first half of the match at Goodison Park.

Rodwell, who was due to be suspended for his club's next three matches, will now be available for the Toffees' trip to Chelsea after the international break.

Hosts Everton lost the weekend's derby 2-0 to the neighbouring Reds.
