"The claim involving Bradley Johnson was upheld meaning his three-match suspension is withdrawn," said the FA on its website (www.thefa.com).

"The claim involving Loic Remy was dismissed therefore his three-match suspension remains with immediate effect."

The players were shown straight red cards in the 82nd minute.
