London:

Everton announced on Monday that they will appeal against Darron Gibson's sending off in Saturday's 2-1 win at West Ham.

Former Manchester United midfielder Gibson was dismissed by referee Anthony Taylor for a high challenge on West Ham's Mark Noble in the closing stages at Upton Park.

Hammers striker Carlton Cole had earlier been sent off for a similar challenge on Everton defender Leighton Baines.

Everton's appeal means Republic of Ireland international Gibson will be able to play in the Boxing Day match against Wigan on Wednesday, with the case due to be heard the following day.

David Moyes' men are currently fifth in the Premier League and could climb back into the top four with a victory over Wigan.
