Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul will be available for Sunday's north London derby against Arsenal after the Football Association confirmed his red card in last weekend's loss at Chelsea had been rescinded.

The 28-year-old was dismissed after conceding a penalty at Stamford Bridge, with Spurs crashing to a 4-0 defeat.

Eden Hazard converted the spot-kick to put the Blues 2-0 ahead at the time and, if Kaboul's red card had stood, Spurs boss Tim Sherwood would have been limited in terms of defensive options when Arsenal visit White Hart Lane.
