The French defender saw red after a challenge with Samuel Eto'o during Spurs' 4-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Tottenham's appeal against the red card shown to defender Younes Kaboul during Spurs defeat at Chelsea on Saturday has been successful, the Football Association have confirmed today.

Therefore, the 28-year-old will now be available to manager Tim Sherwood for this weekend's north London derby, having had his red card and one-match ban rescinded by the FA.

Kaboul was sent off by referee Michael Oliver after a clash with Blues striker Samuel Eto'o during Tottenham's 4-0 defeat.

The score at the time was just one-nil, with Eto'o having put Chelsea ahead, but Eden Hazard's subsequent penalty and two late Demba Ba goals saw Tim Sherwood's Spurs endure a miserable afternoon.
