Jamie Vardy and Andy Carroll could both be facing Football Association charges after Leicester City netted a stoppage time penalty in yesterday's 2-2 draw against West Ham.

Carroll accused referee Jon Moss of attempting to 'even up' decisions by awarding City a late penalty.

The official awarded two debatable spot-kicks and dismissed Leicester forward Vardy for diving.

Hammers striker Carroll conceded a 94th minute penalty after a tangle with Jeffrey Schlupp.

Leonardo Ulloa scored to keep the Foxes eight points clear of Tottenham, who visit Stoke City tonight.

Vardy's reaction to his dismissal could lead to an additional ban if it is included in the referee's report.
