Crystal Palace win Wilfried Zaha red card appeal

Zaha was sent off in injury time on Tuesday

Crystal Palace have successfully appealed against the red card shown to Wilfried Zaha in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Leicester.

The 18-year-old was dismissed for spitting at Patrick van Aanholt, but the card has been rescinded after a review of video evidence.

Zaha would have had to serve a four-match suspension had the dismissal not been overturned.

The striker has scored one goal in 39 appearances for the Eagles this season.
