Leicester 1-1 West Brom

Match summary

16 Oct 2017
Leicester City v West Bromwich Albion

Riyad Mahrez rescued a point for Leicester City after a Nacer Chadli wonder goal had put West Bromwich Albion on course for victory at King Power Stadium. 

The Algerian scored his first goal of the season on 80 minutes as Leicester earned a draw in a Midlands derby that sparked into life late on.

Nacer Chadli put the Baggies ahead with a stunning free-kick from 30 yards on his first appearance of 2017/18. 

But Leicester sensed an equaliser when stand-in West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill, starting in place of the injured Ben Foster, picked up a knock and was unable to properly kick the ball. 

The Foxes were rewarded for piling on the pressure when Ben Chilwell crossed for fellow substitute Islam Slimani to head down and enable Mahrez to slam home.
