Premier League!! Crouch Comes Off The Bench To Score As Stoke City Draw 2-2 With Leicester City (Match Report)

3 years ago

Stoke City twice came from behind to claim a point against Leicester City in a thrilling Premier League game at Bet365 Stadium.

The result maintained Claude Puel’s unbeaten start as Leicester boss after the Frenchman’s new side beat Everton in his first game in charge.

Switzerland playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri was involved in both of the home side’s goals, curling in the first equaliser at the far post before providing the corner for substitute Peter Crouch’s thumping header.

Leicester went ahead when Vicente Iborra lashed home from a corner and the Spaniard could have had a first-half hat-trick but saw a close-range effort blocked and powered a header over the crossbar.

Former PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez impressed throughout for the visitors and cut in from the left to drill home Leicester’s second, before Crouch levelled.

Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel made a string of saves to preserve a point, the best of which came from Kurt Zouma’s header in the last minute of added time.
