LONDON (AP) — The red card issued to Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul during a 4-0 loss to Chelsea in the Premier League has been rescinded by the English Football Association.

The French center back will now be available for the north London derby against Arsenal on Sunday, which will be a boost for Spurs manager Tim Sherwood in light of injuries to Vlad Chiriches and Michael Dawson.

Kaboul was sent off after being adjudged to have fouled Samuel Eto'o in the penalty box in the second half of Saturday's match at Stamford Bridge. The score was 1-0 at the time.
