The Foxes will be crowned Premier League
champions if they win at Old Trafford.
The 29-year-old England striker has already sat out one game for his red card in the Foxes’ 2-2 draw with West Ham last week, missing the 4-0 win over Swansea.
But after accepting a Football Association charge of improper conduct, an independent regulatory committee has handed down a further game’s suspension.
An FA statement 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.”
The England international saw red against West Ham in controversial circumstances after receiving a second yellow card for diving from referee Jon Moss, who was then confronted by a furious Vardy.
That angry reaction earned him the charge of improper conduct, which he accepted but requested a personal hearing in a bid to try and persuade leniency.
Vardy, who has also been fined £10,000 by the FA, will be available for Leicester’s final two games of the season against Everton andChelsea
It means he WILL be present for the title-winning moment if Claudio Ranieri’s men fail to get the job done against United on Sunday.
