    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. 

  2. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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 He's been replaced by Islam Slimani.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.

    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.

    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.

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

  11. Post update

    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.

  12. Post update

    Leicester 2-0 Stoke

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


    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.

    Peter Crouch

    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.

  16. Post update

    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.


    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.

  18. Post update

    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.

  19. Post update

    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.

  20. Post update

    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.
