Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic’s violent conduct ban has been reduced by one game but he will still miss Sunday’s League Cup final against Spurs.
The Football Association’s independent regulatory commission partially upheld an appeal lodged by Chelsea on Tuesday.
Matic, 26, was sent off in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Burnley after reacting to a high tackle from Ashley Barnes.
In a statement, Chelsea said they were “extremely disappointed and frustrated” that Matic must still serve a ban.
Matic will miss the League Cup final against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley and next week’s league match at West Ham United, on Wednesday 4 March.
