Spurs defender Danny Rose has Manchester City red card overturned by FA

The Football Association decides to rescind Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose's red card against Manchester City.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose's red card against Manchester City has been rescinded by the Football Association.

The left-back was sent off for a tackle on City striker Edin Dzeko at White Hart Lane two days ago, resulting in a penalty that was converted by Yaya Toure.

City went on to win the game 5-1, but replays showed that Rose got to the ball before he made contact with the Bosnian forward.

Spurs manager Tim Sherwood told reporters: "I think Andre [Marriner] got it right in the first place when he called it as a corner.

"Unfortunately for us, the linesman decided that Andre got it wrong and he's given a penalty there. I think Danny's making a last-ditch tackle so he's having to lunge in there a bit. He clearly wins the ball."

Rose will now be able to face Hull City tomorrow.
