London - Swansea defender Federico Fernandez had his ban for a red card against Liverpool rescinded on Thursday after a successful appeal by the Premier League club.
Fernandez was sent off by referee Keith Stroud for a tackle on Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho during stoppage-time in the midweek 2-1 League Cup defeat at Anfield.
The tackle was deemed as serious foul play and the Argentinian centre-back faced a three-match ban, starting with Saturday's Premier League trip to Everton.
However, Swansea appealed against the decision with a written statement and video evidence and a Football Association appeals panel has now overturned the red card.
A club statement said: "Swansea City can confirm that the Football Association has rescinded the red card shown to defender Federico Fernandez against Liverpool in midweek."
Swansea manager Garry Monk had expressed his disappointment at the decision to send off Fernandez, the fourth round tie standing at 1-1 with extra-time beckoning before Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren made the most of the visitors being reduced to 10 men with a 95th-minute winner.
"It clearly wasn't a sending off," said Monk, who will meet Mike Riley, the general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited, on Friday to discuss decisions which he says have consistently gone against his side this season.
