Mahrez salvages Leicester point against West Brom

.

Nacer Chadli’s goal was his sixth in the Premier League for West Brom since joining in 2016

Riyad Mahrez’s first goal of the season rescued a point for struggling Leicester City as West Bromwich Albion conceded another late equaliser.

Nacer Chadli’s sublime free-kick looked set to earn the Baggies a hard-earned win in a game short on quality.

Mahrez had wasted a great chance when the game was goalless, but he tucked home when substitute Islam Slimani headed the ball down for him.

It is the third time this season West Brom have conceded an equaliser after 75 minutes.

Leicester remain in the relegation zone and without a win in six Premier League games.

The last time they went six top-flight matches without a victory, Claudio Ranieri was sacked as manager.
