Well it wasn't a classic, but who thought Leicester versus West Brom would be?

That's it from us. See you later.

'We could do with a win'

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare, speaking to BBC Sport: "When you have as much possession as we did and then go a goal down you are always worried how it affects the players but we showed the spirit we have and the resilience and we deserved a goal.

On Riyad Mahrez's impact: "I left him out against Bournemouth, gave him a kick up the backside and he was excellent in training. You want the response and the right response.

"We could do with a win, make no mistake. I see them in training everyday in terms of the quality and endeavour. Once we get that win then hopefully we will climb up the table.

"We know what we have to do. It is tight down there and one win takes you three or four places up and that is what we aim to do."

'If you are not right on it, you get punished'

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

West Brom boss Tony Pulis, speaking to BBC Sport: "When we scored the goal I felt we became more comfortable but every game in this league is tough. Unless you are right on it you are not going to get what you deserve.

"We defended really well and protected Boaz who was struggling. Ben Foster has a problem with his knee and we are a bit concerned about that. Until he has the scan we are not sure.

"There were real opportunities for us. We need to get results because outside the top six this league is so, so tough."

Mahrez off the mark - the stats

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

  • Leicester have enjoyed just one win in their last 11 top-flight games, drawing four and losing six.
  • West Brom have registered just two wins in their last 17 Premier League games (D6 L9), after winning eight of the 17 before that.
  • Nacer Chadli netted his first goal in his last 12 Premier League appearances, since scoring against West Ham on February 11 2017.
  • West Brom scored with their only shot on target of the game.
  • West Brom have now scored 47 set-piece goals (excl. penalties) in the Premier League since Tony Pulis took charge, more than any other side.
  • Riyad Mahrez scored his first goal in his last 11 Premier League appearances, since netting against Watford back in May.
  • The Foxes have picked up just six points from their first eight Premier League games this season, their lowest haul at this stage since 2003/04 (5).

'Not a classic'

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel, speaking to Sky Sports: "I don't think we will get points for it being a classic. It can't have been a great game to watch. We had a lot of the ball but didn't get to grips with having as much of the ball as we did. They came here, were taking their time and trying to take the tempo out of the game. On reflection we had chances to win but it was probably a fair result."

On the West Brom goal: "I was struggling to see it from the start. I thought it would have to be a heck of a shot to get it over a big wall like that. It is frustrating, it was a good strike but as a keeper if you can't see the ball you struggle to make an impact."

'I wasn't coming off'

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

West Brom keeper Boaz Myhill, speaking to Sky Sports: "It is a great point, a battling point. A great free-kick, gutted we couldn't hold on but they are a tough team in a difficult moment."

On a collision with Jamie Vardy: "I was put in a situation where I had to take one for the team, thankfully they didn't score and thankfully I didn't get sent off. We both went into each other, I'll let the people who watch on TV decide who did what."

On whether the collision caused an injury: "It was all one thing. I tried to get up and see how it was, it wasn't great. I think it was (a dead leg). I hadn't played for a year, I wasn't coming off. No chance."

The point is not enough to lift Leicester out of the relegation zone as they remain 18th.

West Brom, meanwhile, are up to 10th.

The game was all about two great goals. West Brom came and parked the bus, while Leicester are a team lacking in confidence. In the end, West Brom will be disappointed they didn't come away with a win.

FULL-TIME

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

All over. The spoils are shared.

Two moments of quality produced the game's two goals and lit up an otherwise dull encounter.

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

Terrible ball bu Gareth Barry gifts possession to Leicester and they are away through Riyad Mahrez. He is into the box but his cross is poor and the Baggies clear.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

A late, late change for Leicester as Andy King replaces Vicente Iborra.

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

Five minutes pops up on the fourth official's board and Leicester fans roar in encouragement. They fancy their side to pinch this but it is West Brom on the attack as James McClean shoots, but Ben Chilwell makes the block.

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

West Brom have gone to three at the back and there's lots of space for Leicester to work with now.

Two minutes plus injury time remaining.

Leicester's fans are bouncing now. For most of this match, they've been shrugging at one another wondering how most of this team won the title two seasons ago. Misplaced passes everywhere - confidence low. But Islam Slimani's arrival has unsettled the West Brom back four and suddenly we have an interesting match.

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

Crucial headed clearance by Ahmed Hegazi from Riyad Mahrez's cross. If he missed that Islam Slimani was on hand to nod home.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

West Brom are dropping deeper and Tony Pulis opts to bring on some fresh legs in an attempt to revitalise his side. James McClean and Gareth McAuley come on for Jay Rodriguez and Nacer Chadli.

Leicester 1-1 West Brom

Moments later, Boaz Myhill is called into action to push away a Ben Chilwell effort.

Leicester can sense the possibility of a winner now.

Islam Slimani has looked really lively since he came on. He's linked the play well, he's shown lots of movement. He's changed things.

GOAL - Leicester 1-1 West Brom

Riyad Mahrez

But one of the stars of that fairy tale season finally gets Leicester out of jail!

A rare cross of quality by Ben Chilwell finds Islam Slimani at the back post, the substitute heads down for Riyad Mahrez and the winger chests the ball down before driving it through a crowd and into the far corner.

Leicester 0-1 West Brom

Leicester's title win was a fairy tale story but it must certainly feel like a thing of fantasy to Foxes fans now because their side look a shadow of their former selves. Poor crosses and wayward passes the story of their performance so far in this game.

Leicester are down on confidence. It's hard work for them at the moment - they don't look comfortable, they don't look relaxed.

SUBSTITUTION

Double substitution for Leicester as Craig Shakespeare sends on Islam Slimani and Ben Chilwell for Kelechi Iheanacho and Danny Simpson.

Leicester pick up the search for an equaliser as Marc Albrighton puts the West Brom defence under pressure with a couple of crosses to the far post. Kieran Gibbs gets ahead of Danny Simpson for the first one before his second drfts just over the head of Vicente Iborra.

YELLOW CARD

Marc Albrighton is booked as he fouls Craig Dawson and West Brom have another chance to do something with a free-kick but this time Leicester clear.

You can see that goal has relaxed West Brom. They look more confident on the ball and Leicester look anxious. At the moment West Brom are in total control.

Leicester 0-1 West Brom

An appalling cross by Wilfred Ndidi gives West Brom the chance to break on the counter. It's three against three with Grzegorz Krychowiak leading the charge but he overhits his ball for Salomon Rondon and the striker's cross from the left is easy pickings for Leicester.

Leicester 0-1 West Brom

No side has scored more goals from set pieces than West Brom since Tony Pulis took charge of the Baggies (47). His football may not be pretty, but he certainly knows how to execute the perfect smash and grab.

Leicester, in the relegation zone, need to muster a response. They've got 25 minutes to find something.

GOAL - Leicester 0-1 West Brom

Nacer Chadli

The breakthrough!

This game needed a bit of quality and Nacer Chadli produces it to give the visitors the lead, steering a superb free-kick round the wall and into the corner of the goal.

Inch perfect, although Kasper Schmeichel moved to it late.

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

Kelechi Iheanacho, remember him? He's been very quiet in this game but catches Mike Dean's attention with a challenge on Grzegorz Krychowiak. Yellow card for the striker a free-kick 30 yards from goal for West Brom...

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

An hour in and West Brom win their first corner of the game. Nacer Chadli plays it short to Gareth Barry, who then pings it in and Harry Maguire does well to head away under pressure.

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

Smart pass by Nacer Chadli sends Jay Rodriguez away down the right. He attempts to bend a low ball behind the defence for Salomon Rondon but Wes Morgan makes an important intervention to snuff out the opportunity.

Meanwhile, it looks like there's still some discussions about Boaz Myhill's condition going on in the West Brom dugout as Tony Pulis talks to the club's medical staff.

Sean Thomas: This game has got 0-0, Brunt coming on in the 85th minute to stop me getting 15 points off my FF bench written all over it...

David Thackeray: If I've counted correctly Leicester have 8 of their champions on the pitch. How on earth did they do it?

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

Kieran Gibbs prevents a wayward pass from going out of play and races off down the flank but his cross is poor and Leicester clear.

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

Boaz Myhill gets up, Tony Pulis appears to gesture to him to make sure he is OK and Myhill just sort of shrugs but he is carrying on for now.

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

Boaz Myhill looks to be still struggling after that earlier collision with Jamie Vardy. He prepares to take a goal kick but then suddenly just sits on the grass, shaking his head.

CLOSE!

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

How did he miss!!?

Marc Albrighton breaks into the area and rolls the ball into the path of Riyad Mahrez who, from seven yards out, blazes well over.

Shocking miss.

Leicester 0-0 West Brom

Riyad Mahrez drills the ball in, Jake Livermore's heads it up into the air and Harry Maguire gets under it before directing a header towards the near post where Boaz Myhill does well to push behind.

More excitement in these three minutes than the entire first half.

Are we into David Beckham asleep territory yet?

The second half is under way.

One of the worst games ever?

It has been really bad. By definition the really poor games you don't remember them. I usually do a 20-second match report on Twitter after games and there was one last season that was so bad I just posted an art impression of David Beckham asleep.
