FA rejects Manchester City red card appeal

Press Association logoPress Association 4/01/2017

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho has failed with an appeal against the red card he received in Monday's match against Burnley, the Football Association has announced.

Brazilian Fernandinho was dismissed for a third time in six appearances in a match that City won 2-1 after goals from Gael Clichy and Sergio Aguero.

He was ordered off for a two-footed lunge on Johann Berg Gudmundsson, and receives a four-match ban rather than the usual three games as it was his second Premier League dismissal of the campaign.

His other red came in the Champions League against Borussia Monchengladbach.
