STAR PLAYER

Jamie Vardy: The England forward continues to impress. Was a key man in Leicester's second-half comeback, and almost added to his equaliser with a late winner, shooting just wide.

MOMENT OF THE MATCH

Bojan Krkic: Hands on head and smiling broadly, the playmaker had a look of pure joy - mixed with a fair degree of relief - as he celebrated after scoring. Will be hoping his injury problems are now well and truly behind him.

VIEW FROM THE BENCH

Stoke boss Mark Hughes appeared furious at his team not getting a free-kick in the build-up to Leicester's leveller, but will surely be most livid at the Potters throwing away the opportunity to chalk up their first league win of 2015-16.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri, while pleased to come away with a point and keep the momentum going, may be annoyed that again his men had to come from behind to get a result. A consolation on that front is that he will not have to act on his pre-match promise of buying his players pizza if they kept a clean sheet.

MOAN OF THE MATCH

Leicester are yet to register a shut-out this term and had the added incentive going into this contest of the reward of food - but you would not know it judging by the way Robert Huth, a former Stoke player no less, and Foxes captain Wes Morgan conducted themselves in the build-up to Stoke's second goal. Sloppy.
