Cesar Azpilicueta will be free to start Chelsea’s season next term after winning an appeal against his final day red card.

The Blues captain was dismissed by Stuart Attwell following a last minute clash with Jack Grealish.

Azpilicueta reacted to a foul by the England midfielder, who stayed down holding his face after being brushed by the Chelsea defender’s left arm.

But a wrongful dismissal claim was upheld by an FA disciplinary committee and the card and three-match ban was removed from his record.
