Lucas Torreira's three-match ban has been upheld after Arsenal unsuccessfully appealed the red card he received against Tottenham.

The Arsenal midfielder was given a straight red in stoppage time during Saturday's north London derby, which ended in a 1-1 draw, for a challenge on Tottenham left-back Danny Rose.

As a result, he will miss Arsenal's next three Premier League games against Manchester United (h), Newcastle (h) and Everton (a).

Torreira will, however, be available for Arsenal's Europa League last-16 first leg against French club Rennes on Thursday.
