Barclays Premiere league highest goal scorer of this season from Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been charged with improper conduct following his sending-off against West Ham United in their 2-2 Premier League draw on Sunday, according to the Football Association said on Monday.
Leicester City has also been charged with failing to control their players after West Ham were awarded a penalty in the 83rd minute at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, the Football Association added in a statement.
Jamie Vardy was shown a second yellow card early in the second half for simulation and appeared to confront referee Jon Moss before leaving the field.
Both club and player have until 6 pm on Thursday to respond to the charges, the FA said.
The England international receives an automatic one-match ban for his dismissal, but that looks certain to be increased following the FA charge.
Chelsea striker Diego Costa was given an additional one-match ban and was fined £20,000 after admitting a charge of improper conduct last month.
Jamie Vardy was punished for his reaction to his sending-off against Everton in an FA Cup tie on 12 March.
Leicester City, who are Premier League leaders, need at eight points from their final four matches to guarantee the title.
