  • Lambert took off his blue jacket and put on a white one during the second half 

Stoke manager Paul Lambert was forced to take his blue jacket off in the second-half of his side’s draw with Leicester after a clash of colours caused Kasper Schmeichel to make two clangers. 

The Leicester shotstopper bizarrely kept kicking in Lambert’s direction during the match and twice kicked the ball out of play from goalkicks. 

Because Lambert was an animated figure near the touchline, the Danish keeper kept mistaking him for a Leicester player.  

The Stoke boss took it off and put a white jumper on instead during the second half at the King Power Stadium

In the 67th minute Lambert was seen swapping his blue jumper for a white one.

The commentators explained to viewers the Stoke boss was forced to change after Schmeichel put in a request. 

The keeper had raised the concern with a member of Leicester’s coaching team earlier on in the match, who then passed on the message. 

‘I got notified by one of the staff that there was a problem with the blue,’ Lambert told Sky Sports after the game.

‘We had already been playing for about 70 minutes [though]. I don’t know what happened before that so it was strange, really strange. I don’t understand what was up.’

Unfortunately for the Stoke boss, just three minutes after changing his colours Leicester levelled the scores.

Jack Butland made an unfortunate error spilling a cross from Marc Albrighton into his own net to cancel out Xherdan Shaqiri’s opener.

The score stayed the same until the final whistle with Stoke remaining firmly in the relegation zone on 26 points.
