The match had a vivid start, with Leicester whipping crosses into the mix and the Cherries wasting an exciting counter attack.

Marc Albrighton should have been Man of the Match in Leicester’s last outing, but a mix-up with King gave the Bournemouth man a penalty kick. King converted, 1-0.

Jamie Vardy helped lead the Leicester wake-up call after halftime, though his work around the hour mark wasn’t rewarded when Ben Chilwell missed a chance.

Mahrez answered that call improbably deep into stoppage time
