Everton and West Ham have confirmed they will appeal Darron Gibson and Carlton Cole's respective red cards at Upton Park on Saturday.

Gibson was dismissed by referee Anthony Taylor for a challenge on Mark Noble in Everton's 2-1 win at Upton Park in a game that also saw Hammers striker Cole controversially sent off for a challenge on Leighton Baines.
