Sean Dyche’s side took an early lead when Vardy inadvertently beat Kasper Schmeichel with a flicked header at his near post from Ashley Westwood’s corner.

However, the Foxes striker atoned for his error as he raced on to Youri Tielemans’ pass and found the bottom corner – before rescuing a late point with another calm finish.

Burnley boss Dyche, who was forced to replace the impressive Cornet because of injury at the end of the first half, thought his side had scored a dramatic injury-time winner only to see Chris Wood’s header ruled out for offside.

“That was a Jamie Vardy performance. He was a threat all game, he was superb,” said Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers.

“You are seeing his energy in the game, freshness, movement and work rate. He is a top, top striker. His movement for the goals was excellent, both were really good team goals but he makes the pass because of his movement.”
