Leicester City came from behind twice against West Ham United to earn a first draw under Brendan Rodgers as it finished 2-2.
The game started similarly to last weekends loss to Newcastle for Leicester. They were poor in possession, playing loose passes and making poor touches giving the ball back to the home side.
West Ham capitalised on another slow Leicester start when Michail Antonio scored a towering header as he jumped above Ben Chilwell.
The second half saw an improvement from Leicester, they were playing with a higher tempo and eventually found their way to goal as Jamie Vardy made a great run to get in front of Fabian Balbuena and poke in Chilwell’s cross.
Leicester were looking to gain momentum and began to control the game when a long distance effort rebounded of the post into the path of Lucas Perez who just had to tap it past a helpless Kasper Schmeichel.
It looked as though West Ham would leave with the three points, but then a fantastic ball from Youri Tielemans sent Harvey Barnes through who finished well to score his first goal for Leicester and earn his side the draw in added time.
Here is how we rated the Leicester players:
Kasper Schmeichel - 6
The Leicester keeper wasn’t given to many saves to make but came out well to claim a few crosses. There wasn’t much he could have done to stop either goal.
Ricardo Pereira - 7
Ricardo had another good performance, made some great tackles at the back and in the second half was able to run down the wing causing West Ham some problems.
Jonny Evans - 7
Evans dealt with any dangers well and was composed on the ball playing long passes out to the wings often.
Harry Maguire - 7
The big Leicester centre-back got his head to pretty much everything in his own box. As with Evans, Maguire was good on the ball playing the ball forwards. Although wasn’t quite able to get on the end of any of Maddison’s crosses from corners.
Ben Chilwell - 8
Chilwell struggled in the first half getting down the wing, but the second half was a different story. Every time he picked up the ball he would drive up the pitch, running past defenders with his pace. His ball for Vardy was the kind of end product he needs to produce more consistently.
Wilfred Ndidi - 7
Ndidi bounced back from his poor display against Newcastle with a great game at the London Stadium. His long legs were everywhere breaking up play and he was able to pick out the right pass most of the time when he had the ball.
Youri Tielemans - 8
Tielemans got off to a slow start, he struggled to find his feet in the first half. But the second half saw the more composed Tielemans we are used to seeing. His ball through to Barnes for the equaliser was excellent.
James Maddison - 6
Maddison did well for the most part against West Ham. He kept working his way into good positions but then he just couldn’t seem to find the finish at the end.
Demarai Gray - 5
The Leicester winger struggled with the same things he has for a while now. Once he got into good areas on the pitch he couldn’t decide the right option to choose and wasted chances.
Jamie Vardy - 7
Other than his goal it was a very quiet game for the Leicester striker. He took his goal well, getting in front of his marker and finishing well past Fabianski.
Marc Albrighton - 6
Albrighton seemed slightly off the pace. Although it was his first start since returning from injury. He worked hard in both attack and defence.
Harvey Barnes - 8
Barnes came off the bench to replace Albrighton and took a little while to get settled into the game. But after a few minutes, his runs down the right wing were dangerous, setting up chances for his side. His goal came from a smart run behind the West Hame defence and he took his chance with composure.
Kelechi Iheanacho - 5
Found it hard to get involved of the bench. Made a couple of poor runs into offside positions when Leicester were in a threatening position.
Nampalys Mendy - N/a
Only came on for a couple of minutes.
