Southampton defender Jan Bednarek will be available for Saturday’s trip to Newcastle, after the club successfully appealed his dismissal in Tuesday’s match against Manchester United.

Bednarek was shown a straight red card during the second half at Old Trafford, having been judged to have denied Anthony Martial an obvious goalscoring opportunity.

The club immediately appealed the decision, and a review by an independent regulatory commission at the Football Association has now led to the card being rescinded.

A statement from The FA said: “Jan Bednarek will be available for Southampton FC’s next fixture after an Independent Regulatory Commission upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal and removed his suspension.

“The defender was sent off for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity during a Premier League fixture against Manchester United FC on Tuesday [02/02/21].”
