Ghana forward Jordan Ayew was instrumental in Aston Villa’s one all drawn game against Leicester.

Riyad Mahrez missed a penalty as Leicester City drew 1-1 with Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday.

A 28th minute goal from Shinji Okazaki gave the Foxes the lead, but Mahrez then sent a casual spot-kick straight at Mark Bunn and Claudio Ranieri’s men failed to hold onto their lead, with Rudy Gestede levelling the scores with 15 minutes remaining.

Leicester would have moved top of the Premier League had they managed to maintain their advantage, but will remain behind new leaders Manchester City following their 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace earlier on Saturday.
