The Foxes are now level with Chelsea on 23 points, but with a better goal difference, and just two points behind second-placed Manchester City.
Meanwhile Everton midfielder Andre Gomes suffered a serious leg injury which left Tottenham's Son Heung-min in tears and overshadowed the home side scoring a 98th-minute equaliser to earn a vital point.
Gomes, 26, was tackled by Son and appeared to be injured by an awkward fall which prompted an anguished reaction from players and fans close to the incident.
Son was sent off by referee Martin Atkinson as Portugal international Gomes received extensive treatment in a lengthy delay and was eventually taken off on a stretcher.
