Struggling champion Leicester conceded twice after Jamie Vardy was sent off before staging a late comeback to draw 2-2 at Stoke in the Premier League on Saturday.

Vardy saw red in the 28th minute for a tackle on Mame Diouf. Danny Simpson’s hand ball then gave Stoke a penalty that Bojan Krkic converted, and Joe Allen sent the hosts into a two-goal lead at halftime.

However, Claudio Ranieri’s side dug deep, with Leonardo Ulloa beginning the recovery in the 74th and Daniel Amartey equalizing in the 88th to give Leicester only its second point on the road in its weak title defense.
