Fabianski to miss Tottenham clash

Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will miss Sunday's English Premier League clash with Tottenham after having his one-match ban confirmed by the English Football Association.

Fabianski was sent off in Swansea's 3-1 Premier League defeat to West Ham at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday. The keeper was shown the red card by referee Chris Foy in the 68th minute for a professional foul on Diafra Sakho.

Swansea manager Garry Monk claimed Sakho handled the ball before being fouled by Fabianski, leading to the club's appeal.

The FA's independent regulatory commission has rejected Swansea's appeal however, ruling Fabianski out of Sunday's clash with Spurs at the Liberty Stadium.
