Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater will serve a three-match ban after he accepted a Football Association charge of violent conduct.

The 26-year-old elbowed Watford's Valon Behrami in the 67th minute of the 2-1 defeat at Vicarage Road on Saturday and is banned with immediate effect.

The incident was not seen by the match officials, but was caught on video.

The England player will miss Premier League games against Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Manchester City.
