Tottenham Hotspur winger, Heung Min Son, was shown a straight red card at home to Chelsea on Sunday after he was deemed to have kicked out at Blues defender Antonio Rudiger.
This came as Spurs were 2-0 down on the day and Son seemed to be bundled to the ground by Rudiger in the Chelsea half.
Upon viewing the replays, Son can be seen moving his studs towards the chest of Rudiger, who then fell to the floor holding his ribs.
While the referee did not give anything for the incident, VAR was used and the straight red card was shown for violent conduct.
In the current Premier League rules, a violent conduct red card results in a three-game ban, with Son set to miss Brighton, Norwich, and Southampton.
However, Spurs did lodge an appeal for the red card to be rescinded, but the Daily Mail now report that the FA have rejected the appeal, confirming that three-game ban.
