Stoke City wasted no time in drawing level as Xherdan Shaqiri drew them level six minutes after they went behind to bring the crowd to live as both teams head into the dressing room for the half time break.

Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi robbed a Stoke City player off the ball and Mahrez profited from his effort to steer home a finish into the bottom corner of Stoke’s goal to put Leicester ahead again.

Peter Crouch rose from the bench to head home a corner kick and once again helped Stoke City draw level for the second time, a score which stayed the same till the final whistle.

Ndidi’s Nigerian counterpart at the club Kelechi Iheanacho came on in the 58th minute for Shinji Okazaki and his introduction added bite to the front line of Leicester, with their second goal coming two minutes after his introduction.

The third Nigerian at the club Ahmed Musa was once again not listed in the Matchday squad, same fate he has endured since the start of the season from the hands of all three coaches who have handled Leicester this season.
