FULL-TIME

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

And that is that. Craig Shakespeare is the first British manager to win his first four Premier League games, and he's overseen a convincing victory from the Foxes today.

Head over to the main Premier League live for all the reaction from today's games. 

CLOSE!

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Peter Crouch, I'm afraid to say, has just messed up a simple chance. A nice delivery from Daniel Amartey finds Crouch, who is ahead of his man, but he heads it over! Mark Hughes just turns away, unable to watch.

Four minutes added time ahead.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Demarai Gray, take a bow. He gets a standing ovation and a cuddle off his manager as he leaves the pitch. Ben Chilwell will take his place for the final few minutes.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Oh! Lee Grant really has been excellent for Stoke. A fingertip stop, diving to his left, denies Demarai Gray.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Stoke need that extra bit of quality when they get into the box. Glen Johnson hacks the ball in towards Marko Arnautovic but it's scruffy and too easy for the Foxes to clear. Arnautovic gets the ball again but the flag, once again, is up - he was definitely offside that time.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

And off Jamie Vardy goes, to a standing ovation after notching his 11th goal of the season. He's been replaced by Islam Slimani.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Oh, Riyad Mahrez! Jamie Vardy is screaming for the ball as Mahrez comes down the right. Mahrez looks up but decides to have a go himself, and ends up with a tame shot rolling well past the net. Vardy looks thoroughly irked.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Mark Hughes furiously rubs at his temples as Charlie Adam fluffs a simple cross. Joe Allen does better though with a lovely cross in from the right, but Kasper Schmeichel is too it.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Stoke look much more confident when they're on the attack. Charlie Adam whips the ball in, Kasper Schmeichel punches it back out, and it takes a last-minute block from a Foxes shirt to stop Marko Arnautovic snaffling a goal. The Stoke man is clearly still infuriated by the offside decision. Charlie Adam then has a go from the edge of the area, the ball whipping around Danny Drinkwater but rising over the bar.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Shinji Okazaki is off for Leicester, replaced by Daniel Amartey.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

The ball is in the net for Stoke, but the flag is up! Marko Arnautovic is absolutely fuming. He's onside to receive Mame Diouf's pass, but the assistant has deemed it offside. Mark Hughes, standing in the pouring rain, looks thoroughly unimpressed.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

A double change for Stoke. Saido Berahino and Glenn Whelan depart, replaced by Mame Diouf and Charlie Adam.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Another Stoke name in the ref's book. This time it's Peter Crouch with an awkward tackle on Shinji Okazaki, catching the Foxes man with his leg. He apologises instantly.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Leicester have taken the wind out of Stoke's sails with that last counter-attack. That's great from Marko Arnautovic, dodging Robert Huth down the right. Peter Crouch comes tearing through and gets in front of Kasper Schmeichel, but there's too much contact from Crouch and the ball ends up rolling rather tamely behind the goal.

GREAT SAVE!

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Lee Grant has been excellent in this game. Stoke had just been putting Leicester under pressure before Jamie Vardy broke, charging up the pitch and finding Riyad Mahrez. Mahrez swivelled, struck the ball and Grant was quick to react, pushing the ball away from the goal.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Wilfred Ndidi nicks the ball off Joe Allen and off he goes, up the middle of the pitch before crossing out to Jamie Vardy on the left. Vardy sees Shinji Okazaki arriving and goes long but there's too much on the ball.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Stoke have got their defensive lines back in order but Leicester still look the most threatening. Christian Fuchs has just picked up his eighth yellow card of the season, however, after unwisely deciding to have an argument with ref Lee Mason.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Some more good work from Lee Grant denies Shinji Okazaki. Jamie Vardy wants the ball in the box but Okazaki shoots, and Grant is down low to batter the ball away for another corner. 

Demarai Gray goes long again, trying to find Robert Huth, but the flag is raised for off-side.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Lovely, lovely work from Joe Allen. He comes haring in just outside the box and dinks the ball over two Leicester defenders, straight into Marko Arnautovic's path. Anrautovic can't quite time his run though, and he finds the side netting once again.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

First change for Stoke - Peter Crouch has come on, in place of Jonathan Walters. It's just started hosing it down, too.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Leicester come again, with Riyad Mahrez finding Christian Fuchs on the edge of the box. Fuchs tries to rifle in a shot but Lee Grant is wise to that, as he gets down to gather the ball. Stoke break and the ball lands nicely for Marko Arnautovic right in front of goal, but he fluffs his shot.

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

Glen Johnson knew what was coming as soon as he allowed Jamie Vardy to nip past him. Stoke are now throwing all their bodies into the box as Leicester keep pushing, before Yohan Benalouane smashes the ball out of play.

Vardy doubles Foxes lead

Leicester 2-0 Stoke

That was oh-so-simple for Jamie Vardy. The ball was floated in nicely by Danny Simpson and Vardy had a ton of space to work with. Stoke won't be happy with the way Vardy was able to nip in front of Glen Johnson and volley home. Lovely stuff.

HALF-TIME

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

Riyad Mahrez takes his time with the second corner, and Stoke clear it accordingly. 

That'll be half-time and Leicester can leave feeling pretty pleased with their first-half efforts.

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

Two minutes of added time ahead. Erik Pieters welcomes the news by completely misjudging a clearance in front of his goal and handing Leicester their sixth corner of the match.

Demarai Gray swings it in towards Robert Huth at the back corner. He goes for the overhead kick but it's into Pieters' body for yet another Leicester corner.

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

Erik Pieters gets a talking to as he brings down Riyad Mahrez with a mistimed arm. The resulting free-kick comes to nothing for the Foxes, though. A good turn from Jonathan Walters ends up meeting Yohan Benalouane, who hoofs the ball up the field with aplomb.

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

Leicester have a plan with these corners - Demarai Gray floats it in towards the back post and Wilfred Ndidi is meant to come darting forward to snaffle it up. However Ryan Shawcross is having none of it, beating the Leicester man to the ball every time.

Stoke work the ball back up the pitch and a dinky little turn from Ramadan Sobhi beats his marker. Kasper Schmeichel has the side-footed effort covered, though.

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

A free-kick for Leicester as Ryan Shawcross - already on a yellow card - brings down Jamie Vardy.

Riyad Mahrez takes it from an awkward angle on the right, and it doesn't beat Stoke's first defender.

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

That's a lovely save from Lee Grant to deny Riyad Mahrez! Mahrez weaves his way through and bends the ball in from just outside the box. Grant watches it and dives quickly to his right to palm it away. Good work from the Stoke keeper.

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

That's a good effort from Saido Berahino, given some space to turn on the right, but Kasper Schmeichel has it covered all the way. He's down low and watches the ball straight into his body.

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

And as quick as you like, Demarai Gray is back up the other end. He has acres of space, but Ryan Shawcross gets a foot in at the last second. The resulting corner ends up in Shinji Okazaki's path, and his attempted overhead kick looks brilliant but it's high over the bar.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

Ooh, Marko Arnautovic! He's set up nicely by Ramadan Sobhi, who sees Arnautovic weaving into the box. Sobhi crosses, Arnautovic swivels and hits the side netting with his attempted poke home.

'One of the best'

It's an incredible goal. Absolutely one of the best goals I've seen!

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

Corner to Leicester after a lovely cross from Riyad Mahrez is punched away by Lee Grant. Demarai Gray takes a short corner but Stoke are having none of that tricky footwork and boot the ball out of Leicester's grasp.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

Stoke are struggling to keep Demarai Gray in check, and now it's Glenn Whelan in the referee's notebook as he brings Gray down.

Leicester 1-0 Stoke

Leicester have won all eight games when they've gone in front this season. Something for Stoke to dwell on.
