Liverpool not to appeal for red card

Liverpool star player Joe Cole is under a 3 match suspension after his club decided not to appeal against the England midfielder's red card against Arsenal team. Cole was shown a direct red card by referee Martin Atkinson following an amazing challenge on Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny in first half time at Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool captain Roy Hodgson said after the match that the Reds might launch an appeal because he felt the tackle was not as expected. But the deadline for appeals passed on Monday without Liverpool lodging a protest, meaning Cole will be out for nearly 3 matches. Cole, who left Chelsea in the close-season, will miss league games against Manchester City, West Brom and Birmingham. The former West Ham player will be available for Thursday's Europa League first leg with Trabzonspor and the second leg the following week.
