Misfiring Tottenham slump to 2-1 defeat at Leicester

Misfiring Tottenham slump to 2-1 defeat at Leicester

Tottenham will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this evening.

Their fast start was soon rewarded with the opening goal inside 12 minutes.

Vardy met Marc Albrighton's left-wing cross with a volleyed lob in the 13th minute, leaving goalkeeper Hugo Lloris stranded.

Spurs responded well after the early setback and nearly found an immediate equalizer, but Moussa Sissoko's strike was half-saved by Kasper Schmeichel, before Vicente Iborra finished the job to clear off the line for the Foxes.

Schmeichel denied Dele Alli at the end of a quick counter-attack led by Christian Eriksen and City doubled their lead right on the stroke of half-time.

Leicester were now camped in their own half as Tottenham dominated the ball and territory without testing Schmeichel. "In every position, they have great players", he continued.




"To try and claw 11 points against a team of Man City's standard, that's a huge ask and I would say, yeah they're playing for a top four place and they need to focus more on the Champions League".

Danny Rose is also likely to come back in but Harry Winks has fallen ill and will have to be assessed while Toby Alderweireld (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (knee) are both out.

He had been quiet again in this match before he collected the ball out on the right, drifted towards the area and curled a lovely left-foot shot beyond Lloris and into the far top corner of the net.

They nearly leveled two minutes later, but Llorente could only fire over from a Serge Aurier cross to waste another guilt-edged chance, although now all the momentum was with the North London side.

Fellow substitute Fernando Llorente then squandered a glorious late chance to level for the visitors but Leicester held on for their first home win over Spurs since 2002.
