Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Robert Madley blew the final whistle, Stoke City manager Mark Hughes explained.

'Peter was effective when he came on. He always gets himself in a good position and he understood what was required. He changed the game for us. It is important that you consistently pick up points. We won't win every game, we won't lose every game. It is about getting a steady return in terms of points. Every time you get a Premier League point you should celebrate.'

Leicester City manager Claude Puel in his comparitive interview explained.

'I am happy with the attitude of my players. It was a good game, good intensity and passion. We had a lot of chances today, it is difficult to accept one point, but Kasper saved well at the end so OK, we take a point. It is an encouraging game which is important for the future.'
