The first chance of the game went West Brom’s way, as Nacer Chadli fired harmlessly wide from Kieran Gibbs’ cross on 18 minutes.
But the best chance of the first period undoubtedly went to Danny Simpson, who on his 100th appearance for the Club, was denied a first Foxes goal after forcing Boaz Myhill into a good stop.
Then came West Brom’s opener through Chadli, who from 30 yards curled in a stunning free kick to give his side the lead with 63 minutes on the clock.
Chilwell surged down the left and curled into Slimani, who got up well and nodded back across goal to find Mahrez. The Algerian took a touch before driving low past Myhill and into the back of the net with 10 minutes to play.
A powerful strike by Maguire from distance might have won it for the Foxes, but Myhill was equal to it and both sides had to settle for a point.
The Algerian slams home from just inside the box.
The introduction of Islam Slimani and Ben Chilwell proved pivotal to Leicester City drawing level late on against the Baggies.
City looked much improved and after Slimani met Chilwell’s cross, Mahrez was there to convert and help City to a Premier League point.
The right back clears the danger.
Danny Simpson has now played 100 times for the Foxes in all competitions and based on his display against West Bromwich Albion, it’s easy to see why.
The right back, who joined from Queens Park Rangers in the summer of 2014, has been one of the Club’s most consistent performers over the last few seasons and he showed that against the Baggies.
He stood strong to halt the runs of West Brom’s attackers and made some vital interceptions, while at the other end, he came agonisingly close to netting his first goal for the Foxes.
Where do we stand?
City's No.9 holds off the challenge of Craig Dawson.
After eight fixtures, the Foxes have picked up six Premier League points and remain 18th in the table following the latest round of fixtures.
