Watch: Leicester saves draw vs. West Ham after late drama

Publish date:

LEICESTER, England (AP) — Leicester forward Leonardo Ulloa scored a penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time to rescue a 2-2 draw for the Premier League leaders against West Ham after top-scorer Jamie Vardy was sent off on Sunday.

The result swung on three penalty calls, with the first not given in the 54th minute when Vardy was adjudged to have dived.

Vardy had already scored in the first half and Leicester protected that lead until the 84th when Andy Carroll netted from the spot after captain Wes Morgan shoved Winston Reid over.

Aaron Cresswell appeared to have ended Leicester's seven-match winning streak when he scored two minutes later.

But deep in stoppage time Carroll shoved Jeffrey Schlupp and Ulloa converted from the spot.

Leicester is eight points clear but Tottenham can cut the lead to five points by winning at Stoke on Monday.
