West Ham United have been boosted after the English FA overturned the red card picked up by Mark Noble in the 3-0 victory over Liverpool, Daily Mail reports.
The 28-year-old was sent off by referee Kevin Friend for a tackle on Reds striker Danny Ings, with the club eventually placing an appeal after the match.
Hammers co-owner David Gold recently confirmed via Twitter that Noble’s red card offence has been rescinded and will be available for selection against Newcastle United.
However, West Ham will still be charged after failing to control their players as they protested the referee’s decision and are now in line to face retrospective action.
Noble revealed after the game that he watched the replay a number of times and still doesn’t understand why he was sent off.
“I’ve watched it probably 10 times back and there’s absolutely no malice in it whatsoever,” he told BBC Sport.
He will be hoping his team can maintain their form following their victory at Anfield as they suffered two consecutive defeats ahead of the fixture.
