Riyad Mahrez wins crucial point after brilliant Nacer Chadli strike

Nacer Chadli put the Baggies ahead on 63 minutes with a cracking free-kick before Riyad Mahrez leveled with ten minutes left on the clock. Both sides came into the game in poor domestic form knowing that securing the three points would be a massive boost for either team.

The match was hampered by a swirling wind and it was nearly more about Ophelia than Shakespeare for a while but the Leicester manager's late changes, particularly the introduction of Islam Slimani and Ben Chilwell, provided the platform for Mahrez, frustrating the West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis.

The Foxes were out to mark the start of a run that would see their Premier League campaign find some hope, but instead, they've ended up landing themselves into more trouble after a 1-1 tie against West Bromwich Albion.

The first chance of note fell to Simpson 10 minutes before the break, the full-back blasting a half-volley goalwards following a corner that was beaten away well by Boaz Myhill, who was starting in goal for West Brom due to a knee injury picked up by Ben Foster.

The Foxes went into the Monday night game at the King Power Stadium with just one win to their name this season and sitting in the final relegation place, while West Brom were just below mid-table.

Leicester have Jamie Vardy and Wilfried Ndidi accessible for the visit of West Brom.Considering Claudio Ranieri was sacked in the wake of controlling Leicester to the Premier League title, to what extent do they clutch an administrator very almost the last three. West Brom is also winless in six matches.

The Belgian didn't catch his volley correctly and it skewed wide, but that was a rare moment of goal mouth action in a drab first half between two teams better without the ball.

West Bromwich Albion: Myhill 6, Gibbs 6, Dawson 6, Hegazi 6, Evans 6, Livermore 5, Barry 5, Krychowiak 6, Chadli 8, Rodriguez 6, Rondon 5.

80' - GOAL! Leicester 1-1 West Brom. Ben Chilwell found Islam Slimani with a cross in from the left and the substitute headed the ball down to his Algerian team-mate, who hammered the ball into the bottom corner.

Leicester have enjoyed just one win in their last 11 top-flight games, drawing four and losing six.

Nacer Chadli netted his first goal in his last 12 Premier League appearances, since scoring against West Ham on February 11 2017.
