Cole and Gibson were dismissed by referee Anthony Taylor for similar high challenges in the match that Everton went on to win 2-1.

The West Ham striker was the first to see red for his challenge on Leighton Baines - he had earlier given them the lead in the 14th minute.

Republic of Ireland international Gibson was dismissed in stoppage-time after Victor Anichebe and Steven Pienaar had scored to send Everton on their way to three vital points.

David Moyes was quick to bemoan the performance of the match officials in the aftermath of an important win for his side, with an appeal against Gibson's red card broadly hinted at.

"The Blues will submit the paperwork on Christmas Eve and due to the FA protocol it does mean that Gibson will be able to participate in the Boxing Day clash with Wigan Athletic," read a statement released on the club's official website.

"Everton's case will be heard on Thursday 27 December and expect to hear the outcome of the appeal later this week."

Cole's appeal will be heard on the same day, but West Ham are not in action on Boxing Day after their derby clash with Arsenal was called off because of industrial action on the tube.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
