Everton's Australia midfielder Tim Cahill must serve a three-match ban after failing to overturn the red card received in Saturday's Merseyside derby on appeal.

Cahill was sent off for “serious foul play” by referee Mike Riley following a studs-up challenge on Xabi Alonso in Everton's 2-0 defeat by Liverpool.

The Football Association confirmed on Tuesday that an independent regulatory commission had rejected Cahill's appeal.

    Once again proving that if you are not a top club like Chelsea or United you cannot get a red card overturned. The FA doesn’t even try to hide from or apologize for this, they just blatantly reject appeals without blinking twice when it comes from one of the so-called “smaller” clubs. Fuck the FA, bunch of corrupt bureacrats, and nothing else.
