If Leicester City is to win the Premier League title on Sunday at Manchester United, it will do so without Jamie Vardy. 

Vardy had his FA ban extended by one match by an independent regulatory commission on Monday for his confrontation with referee Jon Moss in Leicester's 2-2 draw against West Ham, and after sitting out this past Sunday's match vs. Swansea City, he'll miss the key showdown at Old Trafford. Leicester is three points from clinching the Premier League trophy and would do so with a win in any of its final three matches. 

Leicester did just fine without the 22-goal-scorer Vardy on Sunday, beating Swansea 4-0. His replacement in Claudio Ranieri's lineup, Leonardo Ulloa, scored twice.

Vardy, who appeared for an independent hearing to plead his case, was also fined £10,000 for his actions. Vardy went after Moss after being sent off in the match, resulting in the improper conduct charge from the FA and the ensuing ban.
