Vincent Kompany has won his appeal against the sending off at Arsenal on Sunday.
The red card has been rescinded by the Football Association.
An official statement read: “An Independent Regulatory Commission has today upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal regarding Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany.
“The player was dismissed for serious foul play during his side’s match against Arsenal on Sunday 13 January 2013.
“As a result, Kompany’s three-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect.”
The City skipper was dismissed in the 77th minute of the 2-0 win over Arsenal for a tackle on Jack Wilshere.
The appeal victory means the defender will be available for the Blues’ league match against Fulham on Saturday.
