LONDON (AP):

Jamie Vardy faces having his mandatory one-match ban lengthened, potentially ruling the striker out of more of Leicester's title run-in, after he was charged yesterday by the English Football Association over his angry reaction to a red card.

Leicester might now have to cope in the games against Swansea and Manchester United without Vardy, who is the league's second highest scorer behind Tottenham forward Harry Kane.

Vardy was sent off during Sunday's draw with West Ham after being booked twice, the second time for diving in the penalty area after tangling with Angelo Ogbonna.

Vardy confronted referee Jon Moss, jabbing a finger at the match official while appearing to express his anger at receiving his first red card of the season.

The FA's improper conduct charge means Vardy is likely to miss at least two of Leicester's last four league games if he is found guilty.
