There are still areas of concern for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who remain in the thick of a relegation battle.
Leicester are one of just three sides across Europe’s top five leagues not to have kept a clean sheet since club football resumed after last winter’s World Cup.
Goalkeeper Daniel Iversen made his Premier League debut, replacing regular number one Danny Ward, but was unable to keep out Jensen’s strike which deflected off both Ricardo Pereira and Dewsbury-Hall.
Rodger speaks up in post-match interview
“I guess 1-1 was a fair result, looking at the 90 minutes,” he said. “I think we produced a fine first half where we deserved to get in front. Second half, unfortunately they scored really early with the equaliser.
“After that I felt we couldn’t really get going. We lacked the offensive quality from all of our offensive players. We didn’t lack quality but maybe we weren’t at the absolute top of our game.
“I am pleased we are 10 games unbeaten here. We’re definitely creating a fortress and we need to keep building on that.
“I think this game was a good game and one we could and should have won. But before this season if you told me we would draw with Leicester at home and still be 17 points ahead, I would have said, ‘nah maybe not’.”
Jensen had opened the scoring with 32 minutes played in west London. However, Barnes responded shortly after the break, and the hosts had substitute Shandon Baptiste sent off for a second bookable offence late on.
The Foxes had lost on all eight occasions they had trailed in the Premier League at half-time this season but needed just seven second-half minutes to get back level in west London, with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s industry in midfield followed by a fine through ball from James Maddison and Barnes’ neat finish.
It would prove to be Leicester’s only shot on target of the match but, after a frustrating few weeks which has seen them lose four in a row in the Premier League and crash out of the FA Cup at home to Championship side Blackburn, this will feel like a positive step. “It breaks the cycle of results we were on,” said Rodgers afterwards. “We thoroughly deserved it.”
Brentford had substitute Shandon Baptiste sent off in the final minutes after he picked up two quick yellow cards but the draw extends their unbeaten run at home to 10 Premier League games. They move level on points with seventh-placed Brighton in the race for a European qualifying spot, although the Seagulls have two games in hand. Brentford go to Brighton after the international break.
After seeing his side ship 21 goals in 11 games since the World Cup, Rodgers dropped goalkeeper Danny Ward for Premier League debutant Daniel Iversen and the Dane watched his defenders struggle to deal with a fast, direct start from the hosts.
