City got off to a slow start in the capital and were behind at the break, but goals from Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes – in the 92nd minute – saw them twice come from behind to draw.

Reflecting on the match overall, Maguire, who started alongside Jonny Evans in defence, says the Foxes did enough to justify earning their 48th point of the 2018/19 campaign.

“It was a deserved point I think on the balance of the game,” Maguire said. “We were not good enough in the first half but a lot better in the second.

“It was a game of two halves where they deserved to be in the lead (through a Michail Antonio goal) in the first half and then in the second half we were the team on the front foot.

“When we got back level we thought we would only be the side to get the winner but [Lucas Pérez] scored with one of their first attempts of the second half.

“It was disappointing but then Harvey has come on and it is a great finish. It was a fair result in the end, I would say.”

Maguire was also delighted to see Barnes register his first senior goal for the Football Club in such dramatic and memorable circumstances in Stratford.

The 26-year-old also backed Barnes, an Academy graduate who has made 13 Premier League appearances this season, to add more goals to his tally before the end of the season.

“He has played a lot of games since he came back from West Brom, probably more than he imagined,” added Maguire.

Barnes: Finishing The Season Strong

Harvey Barnes spoke to LCFC TV after a 2-2 draw with West Ham at London Stadium on Saturday.

“He was on the bench today for probably the first time in a while. It is strange he has got his first goal coming off the bench.

“He has been brilliant since he came back. He has always looked a threat and been lively in every game.

“He has missed quite a few chances and people may say he needs to improve on that but he is a young boy who has excellent talent.

“Now the first has gone in I am sure he will back it up with many.”
