West Ham striker Andy Carroll's three-match ban for being sent off in the 2-0 win over Swansea has been upheld by the Football Association.

The Hammers forward got his marching orders for swinging an arm out at Chico Flores but contact appeared minimal with the Spanish defender clearly making the most of the incident.

The east-London club were quick to appeal against Howard Webb's decision but it has fallen on deaf ears with the FA.
