Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel took to Twitter to express his dismay at Tottenham Hotspur’s disallowed goal on Saturday.

Despite the fact that the 55-year-old’s son was in goal for Leicester, he still believes that Tottenham should have been awarded the goal.

Spurs had been denied the chance to double their lead when Serge Aurier’s low shot beat Kasper Schmeichel was disallowed for a questionable offside call against Heung-min Son.

The decision galvanised Leicester who immediately hit back to level the score and went on to win the match five minutes from time when James Maddison found the back of the net from distance.

The Foxes thought they had scored in the 16th minute, only to be left frustrated by a VAR decision of their own when Wilfred Ndidi was clearly offside after reacting quickest to Paulo Gazzaniga’s fumbled save.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have now failed to win three consecutive away Premier League games when they were leading at half-time for the first time since March 2008.
