Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will not be able to show his face on the field as the reigning Premier League champions take on Everton in the St Stephen's Day action.

But the Foxes have ensured that his face will be seen all over the King Power Stadium.

The club have provided paper masks depicting the England striker's face in the stands for the Everton fixture.

Vardy was shown a straight red card for a challenge he made in last weekend's match against Stoke City which felled Mame Biram Diouf.

With the referee's decision feverishly debated in the aftermath, Leicester appealed the three match suspension, although their efforts proved fruitless.
