Cape Town - Leicester City defender Danny Simpson is confident the team can win the Premier League title at Manchester United on Sunday without suspended Jamie Vardy.

The Foxes need only three points from the last three remaining games in the league to win their maiden top-flight title.

Vardy, who has scored 22 goals for Claudio Ranieri's side this season, was handed an additional one-match suspension and fined by the FA for reacting angrily to referee Jon Moss after being sent off in the 2-2 draw with West Ham last week.

"I think we have just sent a message to everyone who has been a bit negative about us," Simpson said.

"We have players who can come in and do well. Leo was man of the match against Swansea and Jeff Schlupp came in and was excellent.

"Demarai Gray came on and what a cameo it was from him and Marc Albrighton as well.

"It is all about the squad. We have had a settled team but we have always known the players who are trying to get in the team can do well.

"Whenever we are going to Old Trafford for us it is a big game.

"We want to enjoy it and are looking forward to working hard this week and going to Old Trafford to try and perform again and get the three points."
