Steven Bergwijn, who could be on his way to Ajax, came off the bench to grab a double and move Antonio Conte’s side to within a point of the top four.

But the game has now been overshadowed after it was confirmed a supporter was arrested at the King Power Stadium.

“He will remain in police custody.

“It’s alleged that he spat at a steward at the game.”

A post by Leics Police Events on Wednesday night read: “Not really sure what to say Safe journey home #lcfc fans. 

“One arrest of an away fan for assault on a steward. Good luck getting to sleep tonight. See you Sunday to do it all over again…”

A Leicester fan responded to the news on Twitter by claiming they witnessed visiting fans ‘trampling’ on a steward ‘laying on the floor’.

The reply read: “Horrible scenes from away fans trampling some poor steward laying on the floor, shame on them, big fines for the club I hope.”
