The English Football Association has rejected the appeal of Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic to overturn his red card in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Chelsea.

In the waning minutes of the match, Vidic caught Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard with a late scissor tackle and was shown a straight red for serious foul play.

The Serb will now serve a three-match ban that will see him miss Wednesday's second leg of the League Cup semi-final with Sunderland at Old Trafford that sees United trailing 2-1. A win will likely set up a final date with Manchester City, who have a commanding 6-0 on West Ham heading into Tuesday's second leg. Vidic will also miss Premier League matches with Cardiff City and Stoke City.

United currently sit seventh in the table, six points adrift of Liverpool for the final Champions League place.
