Leicester showed their first sign of a title wobble last weekend with a 2-2 draw at home to West Ham. There’s no shame in dropping points against the high-flying Hammers, but having led only to see Jamie Vardy sent off and subsequently banned, the shine was somewhat taken off the late, late equaliser from the penalty spot courtesy of Leonardo Ulloa.
It really does look like two points dropped rather than one gained following Spurs’ rampant 4-0 battering of Stoke just over 24 hours later, but the Foxes still have a five point lead and four games to defend it, while Ulloa himself is an able stand-in.
With Vardy’s fate – he may be banned for a further game for his reaction to receiving a second yellow card – the burly Argentine is the logical choice to slot into Claudio Ranieri’s starting XI for the Swansea game this weekend, and he could be the answer to fans’ pizza cravings…
Yep, that’s right… pizza cravings. Papa John’s are giving away 50% off orders if the team you back scored two or more goals in ANY game for the remainder of the season, and all you have to do is sign up, back Leicester and wait for the East Midlanders to smash the ball into the back of the net.
Ulloa hasn’t been a regular for Leicester in recent weeks, but he’s managed three goals since late January, working out as a strike close to every 70 minutes of play – not a bad return. Roll into this Leicester NEED points, are playing Swansea, Everton and Chelsea teams, as well as Man United, that will be on the beach in the coming games and have notched two or more goals in their last two games, and it makes sense to back them!
