Danny Drinkwater and Andy King scored the goals for Ranieri’s side but there was a determination about West Brom, who took the lead through Salomon Rondon and later equalised with a fine Craig Gardner free-kick.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis said: “Brunty is going to see a specialist tomorrow so we will wait until he’s done that until we announce what is wrong with him”.
“Every Leicester fan has to be proud of their team”. “It would be fantastic if Leicester could do it, they’ve been a breath of fresh air really this year”.
