Scrawny hitman (and massive racist) Jamie Vardy had an eventful Sunday afternoon at the King Power stadium, with the Leicester star netting a goal and then seeing red following a cheeky dive in the West Ham box.
Vardy had put the title-chasing Foxes 1-0 up on 18 minutes. However, after the break, the striker (who was already on a yellow) clashed with Angelo Ogbonna in the Hammers’ box, with Vardy throwing his legs into the defender in order to win a spot-kick. But Ref Jon Moss was having none of it and showed the Leicester man a second yellow.
Here’s the incident in question…
This is the referee’s view and it looks like a massive dive by Vardy. Just watch him throw his legs at Ogbonna. pic.twitter.com/FafXnMzU3b

Moss then made another contentious decision, awarding West Ham a penalty after Wes Morgan pulled back Winston Reid in the box (something that had being going on at both ends of the pitch all game), with Andy Carroll converting the spot-kick.
Full-back Aaron Cresswell then put the visitors ahead, courtesy of a fine strike, before Moss blew for yet another penalty, after Carroll was (very harshly) adjudged to have fouled Jeff Schlupp in the box.
Leonardo Ulloa then stepped up to fire home from the spot to earn the Foxes a precious point from a very controversial clash.
The hard-fought and rather controversial draw sees Claudio Ranieiri’s side go eight points clear of Spurs at the top of the table, with the Lilywhites having played one game less. Surely, the Foxes can’t blow it now!
