JAMIE VARDY scored for the seventh Premier League game in a row as Leicester jumped back into second in the table.
The Foxes frontman was denied a first-half penalty when he appeared to be caught by Adrian Mariappa in the box.

Craig Pawson gave a free-kick and booked Vardy - and the VAR decided not to overturn the decision.
But Vardy would not be denied and was later helped out by Adam Masina's moment of madness, catching Jonny Evans at the back post with a stray elbow.
The former England striker stepped up and smashed the ball past Ben Foster, who did not even move - ensuring he made it seven league wins on the bounce for Brendan Rodgers' side, equalling the club's all-time top-flight record.
And James Maddison struck deep into injury time to make sure of all three points.
