Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting on social media with their thoughts on the first-half performance they have witnessed against Leicester City this evening.
The first real chance of the game came in the eighth minute when Harry Kane picked up the ball in the Foxes penalty area and created some space to fire off a shot across Kasper Schmeichel which nearly found the back of the net, only for Thomas to backheel the ball away.
Kane went a step closer less than ten minutes later when he rose high from six yards out to crash a header from a Harry Winks corner against the crossbar.
Tottenham continued to dominate proceedings with Lucas Moura seeing his effort beaten away by Schmeichel and moments later, Davinson Sanchez should really have scored but flicked his header the wrong side of the upright.
The visitors were punished for their inability to score when Leicester took the lead against the run of play on twenty-three minutes when a counter-attack saw the ball land at the feet of Daka, who lifted the ball above Hugo Lloris.
Spurs were left scratching their heads wondering how they hadn’t equalised after more last-ditch defending saw Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s shot cleared off the line.
Kane, however, did get his goal seven minutes before the break.
Here is a selection of reaction from some fellow Spurs fans on the opening forty-five minutes of action under the lights at the King Power Stadium with their side currently level at 1-1.
We’ve been so so good. LC have been whack but we’ve been so good bar that sloppy goal and our finishing.
Crested so many chances, pressing well, winning 50/50s. Kane is on smoke, should be on a hatty tho 😭 Skipp, Winks, Sanchez, Reggy all CLASS so far also

We could have scored at least 4 in that half, best first half we’ve had in ages. Playing so much better with 2 up top

How are we not at least 2 or 3 goals in front at half time? Great first half performance. They scored massively against the run of play but we kept going! Carry on like this second half please #COYS #LEITOT

Thought that was one of our best halves under conte to be honest. Looked very good going forward and Kane the best player on the pitch by a country mile. Excited to see how Leicester win from here

*Maybe* our most cohesive half of football under Conte so far? 352 clearly working, big chances galore.
