Leicester City were 2-0 down and reduced to 10 men, and STILL managed to nick a point

This season was never going to live up to the last one for Leicester, and at 2-0 down and with Jamie Vardy red-carded for a dangerous challenge, they were in pretty bad shape against Stoke.

But we all learned not to write the Foxes off last season, and once again Claudio Ranieri’s side showed it’s best not to bet against them.

Gary Lineker’s going to enjoy Leicester’s Premier League title as much as possible this year.

It was a huge effort, and in a campaign that is quickly turning into a relegation struggle, a point that could make all the difference come the end of the season.

That’s good timing from Daniel Amartey.

And while Ranieri will enjoy his Christmas dinner a little more after a fine festive comeback from his side…

…it’s hard to forget just how well they were doing at this point last season.

It’s as if Chelsea and Leicester have swapped places this year.
