The Toffees had found themselves trailing to goals from James Maddison and Jonny Evans 29 minutes into the game, but Tom Davies and Leighton Baines drew them level in a spirited comeback in the second-half.
The veteran left-back left it late to grab his first Everton goal since November 2017, and the quality of the equaliser was well worth the two-year wait.

Here is how Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker reacted to it on Twitter:
Leighton Baines has just scored a ridiculously special goal to equalise in the last minute.

Unfortunately for interim manager Duncan Ferguson and his men, their second-half heroics weren’t enough in the end, with Leicester running out 4-2 winners in the penalty shoot-out after Cenk Tosun and Baines missed their spot-kicks.
Nevertheless, Everton can draw a lot of positives from their resolute performance against the Foxes, and incoming manager Carlo Ancelotti needs to hand Big Dunc a big role in his team given how he has gotten the best out of the players over the course of the last three games.
