Cape Town - The Football Association has overturned Sofiane Feghouli's red card against Manchester United upon appeal from West Ham.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic confirmed the club would be contesting referee Mike Dean's decision to show Feghouli a straight red card for his challenge on Red Devils defender Phil Jones on Monday.

Bilic felt that Jones had "made a meal" of the tackle as both players came together in an attempt to win the ball in the 15th minute of United's 2-0 win at the London Stadium, although it was goalless at the time of the incident.

The east Londoners lodged a claim of wrongful dismissal with the FA, who decided to rescind the dismissal, meaning that the Algerian winger will no longer serve a three-match ban.

He will now be available for the FA Cup third-round clash with Manchester City on Friday.
