Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will miss his side's crucial Premier League showdown with Manchester United, after being handed an additional one-match ban, the Football Association confirmed on 26 April.

Vardy, 29, was shown a red card in the 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Sunday 17 April. The striker served an initial one-match suspension in the 4-0 win over Swansea City on Sunday, but his angry reaction to his sending off earned him a further ban.

The England international has also been fined £10,000 for his conduct, while Leicester have been fined an additional £20,000 for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion, following a separate incident during the same match.

A statement from the FA read: "Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Jamie Vardy has been given a one-match suspension with immediate effect, fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct.

"The Leicester City forward had accepted an FA charge of improper conduct following his second half dismissal against West Ham United on Sunday 17 April 2016."

Leicester can win the Premier League title if they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
