Brighton Tomer Hemed will serve a three-match suspension with immediate effect after a violent conduct charge against him was found proven.
The player was involved in an incident with Newcastle United’s DeAndre Yedlin in the 88th minute of their 1-0 win at the AMEX Stadium on Sunday, which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.
The FA subsequently charged the Israel international with “an alleged act of violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video”.
Despite the Brighton striker contesting the charge, an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Wednesday afternoon ruled against him.
The 30-year-old will now be unavailable to Brighton boss Chris Hughton for Sunday’s trip to Arsenal, as well as the visit of Everton after the international break and the Seagulls’ game with West Ham at the London Stadium on October 20, live on Sky Sports.
