Goals:

0-1. West Ham opens the scoring. A long ball forward finds Bowen, who’s flown across from the right, and the winger strides into the box before firing low past Schmeichel and into the back of the net.

1-1. Tielemans makes no mistake, smashing his penalty into the bottom left corner. Fabianski goes the right way but can’t keep it out.

2-1. Leicester strike first in the second half, Barnes controls a lofted cross-field pass before crossing back into the danger area, and it’s Ricardo who flies in at the far post to head beyond Fabianski and put the Foxes into the lead.

2-2. Dawson with the equaliser. A West Ham corner swings into the danger area, and Dawson climbs above Amartey to knock the ball in. It looks like it’s hit the top of his shoulder, but it’s given, and West Ham won’t care. They’ve levelled the game.

So, where else do  Leicester City FC and Burnley go from here?

A draw was a result neither side would have wanted but will have to take.

West Ham moves a point clear of Manchester United, although the chasing pack all have at least one game in hand over David Moyes’ side, who occupy the final Champions League spot.

Meanwhile, Leicester climbs to 11th and opens a 10-point gap between themselves and Norwich in the 18th.
