Chelsea winger Arjen Robben has been given a four-match ban after his appeal against a red card at West Brom was rejected.

A Football Association disciplinary commission dismissed the 22-year-old’s claim for wrongful dismissal.

Robben was shown a straight red card for serious foul play after his two-footed challenge on the Baggies’ Jonathan Greening.

Robben will serve an extra game on top of the usual three-match ban as it is his second red card of the season.
