"He will have to have an examination then we will see, of course".

But the Frenchman insists the Foxes must develop slowly if they want to achieve their goals.

The Foxes looked to be heading for a third consecutive league defeat after Fabian Balbuena's first-half opener, but Leicester - aided by Mark Noble's dismissal before the interval - snatched a late point when Wilfred Ndidi's 89th-minute strike was deflected in.

Having made all three substitutions, hosts Leicester were forced to play the final minutes of the match with 10 men.

"So, in the last four games, in three of them, I agree we are playing well and improving, but also in three of those last four games we didn't score goals, so something is missing".

No Messi or Ronaldo but Clasico could still define season
A win will ease the pressure off the manager's back and the fans will have the first bragging rights at their oppositions. On the players' support, Lopetegui also said, "Obviously, I trust them and they trust me".

In the 76th minute, they got their awaited equaliser, but Daniel Amartey's finish was ruled offside, for the second time in the game. There's a referee and you must accept his decision.

"He is a young player who has a lot of good technical conditions", the West Ham manager said at a press conference.

Meanwhile, Leicester boss, Claude Puel, thought his side deserved a share of the points: "I don't know if we were lucky?"

"We dug in and we said at half time that we would have to go out and fight for everything". We must continue working and we are unlucky with the goals we are conceding.

Their cause was made more hard in the 38th minute when Mark Noble received a straight red card for raking his studs down Ndidi's calf. The Paraguayan reacted quicker than the sluggish Harry Maguire after his initial header cannoned back off the post and prodded past Schmeichel from close range. He made a strong game and all the battles and the end he sacrificed to save an opportunity for the opponents. "We drew against Leicester away with one player less which can be seen as a good result but the mentality of the players (is that they) want more".
