Premier League Everton win penalty appeal against Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has had his three-match suspension for serious foul play against Crystal Palace overturned after a successful appeal by Everton.

The Blues striker was shown a straight red card in the FA Cup tie at Selhurst Park last Thursday for a challenge on Nathaniel Clyne following a VAR check, and was due to be suspended for three matches, starting with the home clash against Aston Villa on Sunday.

However, the Toffees appealed the red card on Friday and a statement from the FA on Tuesday confirmed the decision to overturn the ban.

It read: “Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be available for Everton’s next three games following a successful claim of wrongful dismissal.

“The striker was sent off for serious foul play in the Emirates FA Cup game against Crystal Palace on Thursday, January 4.”
