Drinkwater escapes further action over United red card. Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater has escaped further punishment after it appeared the 26-year-old swore at referee Michael Oliver after being shown a red card inside the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
The recently capped England international was awarded another yellow card indulging in pull-back on Manchester United's Memphis Depay.
Drinkwater reacted angrily and directed his frustration in the referee, seemingly swearing at Michael Oliver prior to making his way off the sector.
Jamie Vardy was associated with an identical altercation inside the league game against West Ham last month, his reaction to Jon Moss prompted a further match ban which saw him miss Sunday's game.
However, Sky Sports have confirmed that Drinkwater won‘t face further punishment coming from the FA.
Speaking after the overall game, Foxes boss Ranieri said :
“Never I speak about some incidents upon the pitch. The referees have to create a very hard game. I‘m very sad because he is going to miss subsequent game in your own home. I hope I won‘t miss him. ”
Regardless of the red card, Ranieri was happy with his side for drawing against a 'fantastic' Man Utd.
“I am so happy because we drew against a fantastic Man United. They play so well. In the beginning it was eventually amazing. We suffer plenty simply since they press so high.
“Without Vardy it was eventually difficult to stretch the line. I‘m very pleased with these performance after the aim. We keep calm and score a goal.
After that many of us get lots of confidence and play better. After that it was eventually another match they could score, we will score.
“Psychologically it was eventually essential to return as well as for that they are a bit more calm, move the ball quickly and continued to carry out what it is that we spoke inside the week. ”
Leicester could clinch the Premier League title on Monday night if Tottenham neglect to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
If Pochettino's side manage to obtain all three points, we‘ll need to wait until Saturday where a win for Leicester against Everton will see them officially crowned Premier League Champions.
