TOTTENHAM have appealed Son Heung-Min's red card for his leg breaking challenge on Andre Gomes.
The Premier League initially explained the red was for “endangering the safety of a player which happened as a consequence of his initial challenge”.
But Spurs have launched an appeal to the FA, according to the Guardian.
If the appeal is rejected, Son will miss Tottenham's games against Sheffield United, bitter rivals West Ham and Bournemouth.
TOTTENHAM have offered Son Heung-Min counselling to help him deal with his leg breaking challenge on Andre Gomes.
The 27-year-old was left in tears after his tackle on Gomes left the Everton midfielder with a dislocated and fractured ankle during yesterday’s 1-1 draw.
South Korean international Son was sent off over the challenge, despite referee Martin Atkinson initially pulling out the yellow card to book the player.
The ex-Hamburg winger was so distraught that he was unable to pick his head up in the dressing room, as Everton players came in to console him after the full-time whistle.
And according to the Athletic, Son will be given psychological counselling by Spurs who will do all they can to help him.
EX-SPURS star Gareth Bale could be on his way to Manchester City.
Real Madrid are ready to launch a stunning raid on the Blues by offering £70m and Bale for Raheem Sterling.
Los Blancos have identified the England sensation as their next potential big-name signing and are ready to try and unsettle the in-form winger.
SON HEUNG-MIN is “really shaken up” following the Andre Gomes injury, according to Ben Davies.
According to the Express, he said: “He's really shaken up. He's down about what happened.
“I speak for everyone when I say sympathy for Gomes, I hope he's alright.
“We will try to pick him up as much as we can. It's tough right now.
“It's just about making sure that he realises he didn't go out there to hurt anyone, he thinks that people may see that in him but it's not the case.”
EX-PREMIER LEAGUE referee Dermot Gallagher can understand why Son Heung-min received a red card.
He said: “Whatever the decision made on the day pales into insignificance for what happened to Gomes.
“I wish him a speedy recovery. I just hope Martin Atkinson gets the support network he deserves because people will say it wasn't a red card – they may well be right – but if you're in that situation at that time I can fully understand why Atkinson took the action he did.
“I defy any person refereeing at that level and to be involved in that situation to put their hand up and say 'I'd have done it differently'.”
