Anyone watching Leicester City's campaign knows that Riyad Mahrez is capable of creating magic in the attacking third, and he was at it again in first-half stoppage time vs. West Brom on Tuesday. 

Minutes after first-place Leicester had erased a 1-0 deficit at home to the Baggies, Mahrez ran onto a cross and hit a perfect first touch off the outside of his foot to set up Andy King, the Foxes' longest-serving player. King, in Claudio Ranieri's lineup for the injured N'Golo Kante, put his first-time effort off the bounce by Ben Foster to give Leicester a 2-1 edge heading into the locker room at the aptly named King Power Stadium. 

Watch his goal below:

The lead didn't last long for Leicester, as Craig Gardner's gorgeous free kick five minutes into the second half–set up by a Mahrez handball–leveled the score at 2-2, which is how the match finished.

Leicester was aiming to pad its Premier League lead for the final 10-game stretch. The Foxes entered the day two points clear of Tottenham, which faces West Ham on Wednesday with a chance to take the table lead on goal differential before facing London rival Arsenal on Saturday.
