EPL: Leicester earn late draw, Liverpool win

Leicester City scored a 95th-minute penalty to rescue a 2-2 draw against West Ham United in an action-packed match at the King Power Stadium this afternoon.

The hosts looked on course for a first defeat in eight games when West Ham scored twice in as many second-half minutes to cancel out a Jamie Vardy opener after the striker had also been sent off.

However, referee Jonathan Moss capped a controversial showing by awarding a late spot kick to the home side, and Leonardo Ulloa tucked it away to send his side eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

Liverpool defeated Bournemouth 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium to maintain their impressive recent form and close in on the top five in the Premier League table.

The Reds scored both of their goals late in the first half through Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge, as a much-changed visiting side picked up another win to make it just two defeats in 14 outings overall.
