Vardy's fine season has seen him quickly close in on joining the Premier League's 100 club, the 33-year-old needing just three more league goals to reach a century of top flight goals. Counting matches in charge of Manchester United from 2016-18, he has lost on five of his six returns to Stamford Bridge in the past four seasons.
The Argentine appeared to stamp on Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta as Spurs lost 2-1 but after a check for possible violent conduct by the video-assisted officials, Lo Celso escaped without punishment.

At Turf Moor, relegation-threatened Bournemouth was denied an equaliser against Burnley when VAR chose to rule out Harry Wilson's goal because it judged there was a handball in the Bournemouth area 15 seconds earlier. "If there are complaints from Manchester United fans I will respond to them".
"It's very hard. I've got to be careful what I say", Howe said. Then Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers was left bemused as he did not intervene when Kevin De Bruyne clearly handled James Maddison's free-kick in the first-half, but did step in to award Manchester City a penalty on the hour when Ilkay Gundogan's shot struck the elbow of Dennis Praet - highlighting inconsistencies still inherent in the system.

The Blades have been on a roll, losing only once in their last seven matches and climbing up to sixth place in the league table with 39 points.
They took the lead at home against Brighton through Enda Stevens but Neal Maupay equalised for the south coast club on the half-hour.
Brendan Rodgers' Leicester side have enjoyed a hugely successful campaign so far, sitting comfortably inside the top four and looking a safe bet to bring Champions League football to the King Power Stadium next season.
The 1-1 draw leaves Sheffield United in sixth place on 40 points, level with Tottenham.
Newcastle may still be seven points above the bottom three, but after Saturday's 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace, the difficulty Steve Bruce's side are in can not be ignored.
