Arsenal have won their appeal for Gabriel's red card against Chelsea for his clash with Diego Costa, meaning the Brazilian defender will be allowed to play against Tottenham in the League Cup tomorrow night.

An FA statement read:

"Arsenal’s claim of wrongful dismissal in relation to Gabriel has been upheld following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.

The player’s three-match suspension has, therefore, been withdrawn with immediate effect.

Gabriel was dismissed for violent conduct during the game against Chelsea on Saturday [19 September 2015].

The player is currently subject to a separate FA charge of improper conduct in relation to Saturday's game and has until 6pm on Thursday [24 September 2015] to reply."
