Vardy’s late penalty earned Leicester a draw

Jamie Vardy’s late penalty earned Leicester a draw away to Bournemouth and preserved his side’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Callum Wilson’s bicycle kick opened the scoring for Bournemouth after Max Gradel’s deflected header fell kindly.

The Cherries were forced to make three substitutions through injuries as goalkeeper Artur Boruc was a spectator for much of the game.

But Vardy levelled after being fouled in the box with four minutes to play.

The 28-year-old’s hard running was the brightest feature Leicester’s display and he tricked Bournemouth defender Steve Cook into scything him down with some neat footwork.

The result means Claudio Ranieri remains unbeaten in his first four matches in charge of the Foxes, while Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth go into the international break with four points from their first four games in the top flight.
