Misfiring Tottenham slump to defeat at Leicester

first_imgTottenham Hotspur’s slump continued as Leicester City beat them 2-1 on Tuesday with Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez on target to avenge last season’s home mauling by the Londoners at the King Power stadium.Thrashed 6-1 by Mauricio Pochettino’s side in May, Leicester produced a performance more like that which took them to the Premier League title in 2015-16, leaving Spurs reeling after a third defeat in their last five league games.Vardy put the hosts ahead after 13 minutes, cleverly lobbing a volley over Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris after being put through by Marc Albrighton’s chipped pass.Spurs responded with Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli having chances to equalise but were dealt a crushing blow on the stroke of halftime when Mahrez cut in from the right and sent a spectacular dipping effort into the top corner.Tottenham’s Argentine forward Erik Lamela came on for his first appearance in 13 months after injury and set up Harry Kane to smash home a late reply.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.last_img read more
