Dominic Calvert-Lewin Ban Rescinded

Everton have won with their appeal against the red card given to Dominic Calvert-Lewin in Thursday’s goalless FA Cup third-round tie at Crystal Palace.

The 26-year-old striker faced a three-game ban after being dismissed for the first time in his career.

Referee Chris Kavanagh originally took no action but reviewed the incident on the monitor following an intervention from video assistant referee (VAR) Craig Pawson before showing Calvert-Lewin the red card in the 79th minute.

Following Everton’s appeal, 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, 4 January 2024.”
