Everton manager David Moyes was furious after his side let their lead slip in the dying seconds against Leicester.
Moyes had seen his side play with 10 men for 50 minutes after Duncan Ferguson was sent off.
"You think when you get in that situation you are hoping to hold on but Leicester are a difficult side to play against," Moyes said.
"They put you under a lot of pressure and we generally coped quite well. Maybe having 10 men told in the end."
Marcus Bent's late equaliser goal was a blow for Moyes after Ferguson was sent off for picking up two yellow cards.
When he was dismissed by referee Barry Knight, he angrily grabbed Steffen Freund.
But Everton regrouped and seemed to have secured the points through Wayne Rooney's eighth goal of the season.
"My assistant asked the referee and he didn't clarify what the sending off was for," said Moyes.
"We are guessing it was for persistent fouling. We will have to wait and see the referee's report.
"I saw there was an incident after the sending off but whether it was handbags I don't know."
