Leicester City stole their second away point of the season in exhilarating fashion with a come from behind 2-2 draw at Stoke. Just as it looked like the the cosmos and Craig Pawson were conspiring against the Foxes, the Leicester of last season appeared (minus one man) and snatched a result. With a match like that comes the fun of great social media reactions. Let’s take a look at the best of them.
We’ll start with this gem. Not so much the tweet itself as the fact that Kasper is back to save us from a relegation battle. Even though the back line has been much improved in recent performances, the boost our number one keeper provides is undeniable. Good to have you back, Kasper!
Forget the bias, Gary, ludicrous seems an apt description. Let’s not name any names, but somebody *cough* Craig Pawson *cough*, may have been trying to make up for a controversial yellow-that-could’ve-been-red from earlier in the week on *cough* Marcos Rojo *cough*.
I may be biased but a ludicrous red card has been shown to @vardy7— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 17, 2016
Things kind of fell apart after that red though, and Paddy Power brought some good banter to the party.

I’m not sure which was a bigger surprise, Leicester winning the Premier League or Claudio actually yelling at a referee. No, really, I swear I saw it.
Even Claudio has lost his cool with referee, Craig Pawson. That I never thought I'd see.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 17, 2016
And of course, just as we all predicted, Leo Ulloa and Daniel Amartey were the scorers. In a real-life game. In 2016. For Leicester. You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
Let’s check in on how the fans reacted to that.
That seems about right. What about the Leicester broadcasters? “The comeback that seemed impossible,” he said. That was chills-inducing.
Excellent analysis from Mr. Lineker here, 10-man Leicester really showed fight against 12-ma... wait, 12? CHEEKY.
10 man Leicester come from 2 down to earn a point against 12 man Stoke. The stuff of Champions.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 17, 2016
Our friend Arlo White provided some real banter-less analysis too. I’d take it a step further, though, and say it was the grittiest performance in the Premier League this season. Down a man and down 2 goals. It doesn’t get any grittier than that.
One of the grittiest performances anywhere in the premier league this season. Stoke 2-2 Leicester.— Arlo White (@arlowhite) December 17, 2016
“Everybody is very happy now.” Brilliant words from a brilliant man. Who cares if he’s been mostly subpar until this point. We love you, Daniel Amartey.

As always, our favorite Austrian Fox sums it all up perfectly. The Fearless Foxes never quit.
Never change, Leicester.
