Manchester City are bidding to get the red card picked up by Pablo Zabaleta in Wednesday's draw with Arsenal overturned after launching an official appeal with the FA.
Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta were sent off for violent conduct
Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna were both dismissed following a second-half altercation, which saw the opposing duo clash heads. Arsenal and City eventually settled for a 0-0 draw.
The FA statement makes no mention of contact from Arsenal regarding an appeal over Sagna's punishment.
"Manchester City's Pablo Zabaleta has submitted a claim for wrongful dismissal," read the statement on the official FA website.
"Zabaleta was shown a red card during City's match against Arsenal on January 5. A Regulatory Commission will hear the claim on Friday 7 January."
