Leicester City for the second consecutive game failed to find the back of the net as they could only manage a barren draw in their Tuesday clash at home against Manchester City.
Maximum points at home for the hitherto high flying foxes could have seen them reclaim top spot from Arsenal but having fired blanks, the solitary point saw them level up on points with the Gunners but still in second place while for City, they have leapfrogged Spurs into third place.
It was the home side that had the game’s first half-chance in the 16th minute when Robert Huth’s header into the top corner went just over City’s crossbar.
Thereafter, Kasper Schmeichel denied Kevin de Bruyne with a smart stop down the other end.
Riyad Mahrez was next in line to come close in the 25th minute, but his long-range strike fizzed past the post, before Schmeichel was once again forced into action to deny Sterling the chance of breaking the deadlock.
Marc Albrighton and Vardy both missed good chances for the home team in the latter stages of the opening 45 minutes, but Man City had the upper hand as the two sides were inseparable in the first half.
The second half was not any different as both teams carved out a good number of chances for themselves but they still could not bury the ball into the net.
Nigerian youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho was thrown in late in the game to replace Sterling but he could not weave in any late strike as the Week 19 tie ended goalless and points shared at the King Power Stadium.
