James Tarkowski will miss Burnley’s next three matches after he was charged with violent conduct.
The Clarets defender accepted the charge but argued the suspension was excessive. This was rejected by an Independent Regulatory Commission.
The defender was involved in an off-the-ball incident with Brighton’s Glenn Murray during Saturday’s game at the AMEX Stadium.
Tarkowski misses Saturday's game at home to Tottenham Hotspur, in addition to the Boxing Day game at Manchester United and the trip to Huddersfield Town on December 30.
