FULL TIME: Saints 1-1 Leicester
A massive display of stamina from a Saints team that were reduced to ten men after just ten minutes at St Mary's. James Ward-Prowse's penalty kick shot them in front in the second-half and despite Evans' 68th minute equaliser, Saints dug deep to earn a huge point at home.
Three minutes left to play
As the fourth official indicates an additional three minutes of extra time, Alex McCarthy comes forward to make another crucial save for Saints.
Saints holding on
It's been all Leicester as the game draws to a close but Saints are holding on to what could be a huge point.
Dangerous free-kick for Leicester
Stuart Armstrong concedes a free-kick on the edge of the penalty area. James Maddison's effort is cleared by the Southampton defence, though Leicester's Evans is later deemed offside anyhow.
Vital save from McCarthy
Leicester are piling on the pressure now with less than ten minutes to go. Some nice ball work moving forward sees Vardy with a strong chance on goal again but Alex McCarthy's acrobatics see the ball deflected out of the danger zone.
Leicester come close
Vardy looks sure to score after Albrighton launches a ball in from the right flank but Kyle Walker-Peters is there to defer the threat.
Saints still pressing
Saints have put in a fighting performance here at St Mary's and come close to taking the lead once again. Jack Stephens' cross in nearly falls for Ché Adams but the Leicester defence manage to clear. A big 15 minutes ahead.
Our captain ❤️
Pinpoint accuracy from the spot once again from James Ward-Prowse.

Back under way at St Mary's
The action has restarted here at St Mary's as a ten man Southampton continue to battle Leicester City in a crucial Premier League clash.
HALF TIME: Saints 0-0 Leicester
It's been a challenging first half for Saints who were reduced to ten men after just 10 minutes. While Leicester have had plenty of the ball, Ralph Hasenhüttl's men have really dug deep to avoid conceding in this first-half. A huge 45 minutes awaits.
3 additional minutes
The fourth official has indicated an additional three minutes.
Saints are struggling to have any time on the ball now as Leicester continue their charge towards goal. McCarthy makes a couple of important saves as Tielemans and Maddison both fire on target.
Leicester in control
Since going down to ten-men it's the Foxes who are looking more likely to score. Brendan Rodgers' men have seen plenty of the ball but are yet to break through the Southampton defence.
Saints not giving up hope
Despite the disappointment of an early red card, Saints aren't giving up the battle as they continue to press forward. Nathan Redmond launches a powerful shot on goal but it's punched away by Schmeichel.
Maddison comes close
As expected, James Maddison gets behind the dead ball as Leicester line up the free kick but his curling shot edges a yard wide.
Red Card for Jannik Vestergaard (Southampton)
Despite getting to the ball first, Jannik Vestergaard is given a red card for a challenge on Jamie Vardy. Leicester have a dangerous free-kick on the edge of the box.
Saints pressing for an early goal
Another attacking start from Saints who are on the front font in the opening minutes. Tella finds himself in front of goal but his shot goes straight into the hands of Schmeichel.
VAR Decision: Goal not awarded for Southampton [Kyle Walker-Peters] was confirmed
Saints had the ball in the back of the net after just two minutes as Vestergaard's pass releases Walker-Peters but the flag goes up and the goal doesn't stand.
