Andy Carroll: Will serve a three-match ban

West Ham striker Andy Carroll will serve a three-match ban after his appeal for the red card shown in Saturday's win over Swansea was dismissed by the Football Association.

The 25-year-old England forward was sent off by referee Howard Webb following a tussle with Swansea's Chico Flores, having set up both of Kevin Nolan's goals as the Hammers picked up just their fifth Barclays Premier League win of the season.

Carroll sent a Tweet on Tuesday afternoon suggesting he was aware of the decision as he simply wrote: "DISGRACEFUL".

He will now miss the Hammers' next three fixtures, starting with Saturday's clash with Aston Villa, after only featuring in four league games so far this season following a lengthy injury lay-off.

stark contrast to Neymar's treatment at Barca his first year. He was brushed off to the flank and told to stay there. I thought it was a bit harsh from Martino to margianalize Neymar like that, but good grief, it's better than woshipping him like his national team does.
