Leicester City spark another comeback

A draw at Stoke City extends Leicester’s unbeaten run as they once again came from two goals down to get a share of the points.

If last week’s fight back in the 3-2 win against Aston Villa wasn’t dramatic enough, the Foxes pulled off another comeback to salvage a point at the Britannia.

Manager Claudio Ranieri promised to buy his players pizza in exchange for a clean sheet earlier in the week but this prospect soon vanished as Leicester found themselves 2-0 down after 20 minutes.

Bojan put the Potters ahead on his first league start of the season with a composed finish following some neat work from Marko Arnautovic.

Stoke then doubled their lead through a Wes Morgan error. The Leicester captain played a poor backpass which Jonathan Walters latched onto to finish past Kasper Schmeichel.

The Foxes came out after the break with more of an attacking threat after Marc Albrighton was brought on for Gokhan Inler.

It didn’t take long for Leicester to make an impact in the second half; Danny Drinkwater drawing a foul in the area before Riyad Mahrez converted the penalty, scoring his fifth goal of the season.

The Algerian was also involved in the second goal when he played Jamie Vardy through to equalise. Vardy’s impressive goal scoring form is certainly putting him in contention for a place in England’s Euro 2016 squad and he could have even won the game for Leicester but saw his strike from distance fly just wide.

One of the standout players for the Foxes in the second half was new signing N’Golo Kante who made numerous tackles and interceptions, showing real energy in the heart of midfield.

It was a well-received point for Leicester as they remain unbeaten in all competitions as they head into Tuesday’s League Cup match against West Ham United, before another tough test in the next league game at home to Arsenal.
