Leicester City were held to a 2-2 draw by West Bromwich Albion at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night as they dropped what could be key points in the title race.
Despite falling behind early on through a goal from Solomon Rondon, the hosts fought back through goals from Danny Drinkwater and Andy King, but this stunning Craig Gardner free kick earned a share of the spoils for the visitors.
With both Tottenham and Arsenal not in action until Wednesday night, Claudio Ranieri’s side had the opportunity to stretch their lead at the top of the Premier League table to five points.
However, Spurs will now have the chance to move level with the Foxes when they take on West Ham United at Upton Park, while the Gunners will hope to get back on track and close the gap when they entertain Swansea City.
In what has been a stunning season thus far for Leicester, they will now hope to take advantage of the north London rivals facing off at the weekend, which in turn could give them the opportunity to open up a more commanding lead.
Nevertheless, Ranieri will be delighted with the performance from his players, although they came agonisingly close late on to securing all three points with Leonardo Ulloa unable to get a decisive touch.
Having pushed for a winner in the closing stages, it was undoubtedly two points dropped for the hosts, but they will hope to see their rivals now slip up in the remaining midweek fixtures and continue to take it a game at a time.
