Nigerian star Musa finished off a Jamie Vardy cross to equalise for Leicester after Vincent Janssen had given Spurs the lead from the penalty spot late in the first half.

The goal was Musa's second of the season after opening his account in Leicester's 3-1 win against Crystal Palace.

The draw also means Claudio Ranieri has not lost in eight games against Spurs as a manager, winning four and drawing four.

Spurs remain unbeaten after 10 rounds of games in the EPL this season.

Dele Alli had Spurs' first real chance on 13 minutes shooting from 20 yards which Kasper Schmeichel saved.

Schmeichel was called into action again a minute later, this time stopping Danny Rose's 25-yard half volley.

In the 33rd minute Shinji Okazaki went close for Leicester but his flick at the near post off Riyad Mahrez's cross drifted just wide of Hugo Lloris' goal.

Alli almost put Spurs ahead with five minutes remaining in the first half only to see his first-time strike off Kyle Walker's cut-back came off the cross bar.

Spurs broke the deadlock through Janssen who converted a 44th minute penalty after he was fouled by Robert Huth.

Musa drew Leicester level in the 48th minute, finishing from close range Vardy's squared ball.

Eleven minutes into the second half Schmeichel gathered Christian Eriksen's free-kick which deflected off Leicester's defensive wall.

In the 63rd minute Rose prevented Leicester from taking the lead, intercepting a pass for Okazaki.

Leicester made the game's first change of the game with goal scorer Musa going off for Jeffery Schlupp in the 68th minute.

In the 80th minute Spurs went on a dangerous counter but Huth made an excellent tackle to prevent Heung-Min Son from putting Spurs ahead.

In the 87th minute Jan Vertonghen almost won it for Spurs but saw his header rattle the upright.

Andy King almost won it for Leicester in the 92nd minute but saw his goal-bound effort parried away by Lloris.

At Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands by refereeMark Clattenburg for complaining over a penalty incident that didn't go his side's way as 10-man Manchester United were held to a 0-0 draw by Burnley.

United bossed the first half of the game but couldn't break the deadlock.

United continued from where they stopped in the second half but still could not find a way past former Red Devils keeper Tom Heaton.

Things went from bad to worse for United in the 68th minute as Ander Herrera was sent off after collecting his second yellow card of the game.
