Leicester City scored with the final kick of the game to salvage a 1-1 draw against Bournemouth at the King Power.

Trailing to a 35th-minute Josh King penalty, it was Riyad Mahrez who provided a moment of magic to snatch an incredibly dramatic equaliser just when it looked like all hope was lost.

Stationed over a freekick some 30-yards out and with stoppage time dribbling away to nowt, the Algerian kept it low and passed a shot around the wall, sneaking his shot just inside Asmir Begovic’s right-hand upright…

Using the wall to cloak the shot until it’s too late for Begovic to react. Beautiful.

The goal means Mahrez has now reached the 10-goal mark in three consecutive seasons for Leicester, despite him wanting to leave the club for roughly half of that time.

Doesn’t look like it’s effected team camaraderie much though…

Why would you want to leave all that behind? Is being a bit-part player in a Champions League team really that enticing?
