Jamie Vardy sent off

Jamie Vardy was sent off in the first half of Leicester’s game at Stoke today.

The red card comes at the worst possible time for Vardy, who was just starting to find his form after his hat-trick against Man City last week.

It’s been a frustrating season for Vardy, and this sending off merely adds to his woes, as he’ll now be set for a ban.

‘Completely Wrong’

By by all accounts, it was a very harsh decision to send Vardy off.

The England striker was earnestly chasing down a loose ball, and while he did go in with two feet, his sliding challenge was low, and anything but reckless.

When you consider what Marcos Rojo has gotten away with of late, then you have to agree with Dion Dublin here: this was a shocking decision.
