Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta has avoided a three-match ban after his red card at Arsenal on Wednesday was overturned by the Football Association. A Regulatory Commission hearing upheld City's claim for wrongful dismissal after he and Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna were both sent straight off. The decision means the Argentine defender is now available to face Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday. City's left-back will now also be able to play in forthcoming Premier League games against Wolves and Aston Villa as the Manchester club bids to maintain its title chase.
