Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater will not face any further action following his sending off against Manchester United.

The 26-year-old will therefore serve a one-match suspension after being booked twice at Old Trafford, meaning he will miss Saturday's home game against Everton.

Drinkwater reacted angrily and appeared to swear at referee Michael Oliver after picking up the second yellow card for a foul on Memphis Depay in the 1-1 draw.

The incident was not mentioned in Oliver's match report and so the FA will not follow it up any further.

Ranieri said: "I am very sad because he will miss the next game at home."
