Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland the best in Britain - Paul Lambert

Memorable Match Leicester City 4-2 Stoke City- Foxes rampant in first home game of season

"That would have made it 2-0 and I thought we should have been two or three up before they even scored", said Lambert. Replacing that experienced trio will Bruno Martins Indi, Geoff Cameron and Kostas Stafylidis.

Super Eagles duo, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi were both in action for Leicester City in their 1-1 draw against Stoke City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Leicester, which was unbeaten in five games against Stoke, made a high-tempo start to the second half, but the Potters nearly doubled their lead after 55 minutes.

The last presented Matty James with a shooting opportunity but he was unable to keep his effort down.

The Stoke forward advanced towards the penalty area before beating Schmeichel with a low curling effort from 22 yards out.

"Their goalkeeper made some fantastic saves but during our period of pressure in the second half we needed to find more".

Leicester made an aggressive start to the match but before long Stoke was able to get a grip on the hosts, with neither side gelling in the opening stages.

No problem with Chelsea despite Conte row, says Mourinho
United have kept a total of 23 clean sheets overall this season, which is three more than any other Premier League team. Conte went on to call his opposite number "a little man" and "fake".

With the goalkeeper well out of position, Shaqiri shot from 40 yards out but his effort curled agonisingly wide as Schmeichel scrambled back. However, the ball struck his body and went into the net.

After the half-time break, the Foxes looked a lot more threatening with Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez getting onto the ball more often and causing the Stoke back four all sorts of trouble.

After substitute Charlie Adam's very bad header sent Mahrez through, Butland made another vital save to protect Stoke's point after Kurt Zouma's block deflected the winger's effort, with James heading against the post in a frantic finale.

From the resulting set piece, the ball was played to Mahrez who found Maguire with an outswinging cross, only for the defender to head against the far post before the away team eventually cleared.

"Up until their goal, we dealt with everything comfortably and they were frustrated", Stoke midfielder Joe Allen said.

"To take the lead and not come away with the three points is naturally disappointing". We know who the favourites are, but they've got to show it on the pitch next week.
