Jamie Vardy could face additional Football Association action for his reaction to being sent off in Leicester's draw with West Ham.

The 29-year-old opened the scoring on Sunday and was the centre of attention again in the 56th minute, having been adjudged to have taken a tumble under pressure from Angelo Ogbonna.

Vardy was given a second yellow card by referee Jonathan Moss during the 2-2 draw and his reaction could now lead to an additional ban.

The England striker will be sweating on the referee's report as, if the incident is included, he could face a charge for misconduct, raising the spectre of an additional ban.

Earlier this month, the FA gave Diego Costa an additional one-match suspension, £20,000 fine and warning as to his future conduct for the way he reacted to his second yellow card in Chelsea's FA Cup quarter-final at Everton.
