Mason Mount opened the scoring in the seventh minute, robbing Wilfred Ndidi on the edge of his own box before firing the ball underneath Kaper Schmeichel to net his first Premier League goal.

Mount and N’Golo Kante missed further good chances in the first half for the Blues.

Leicester were much the better team in an open second half at the Bridge with James Maddison pulling the strings for the Foxes.

They got the goal that their play merited when Wilfred Ndidi atoned for his earlier error by powering in a header from a corner midway through the second period.

Both Maddison and Vardy missed clear-cut opportunities to win the game for Leicester.
