Tottenham Hotspur fell to a frustrating defeat against Leicester City this afternoon, with the visitors controlling the game from the first minute until the last.

Jamie Vardy scored from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time thanks to a reckless Serge Aurier challenge, before the Leicester striker forced a second goal with a deflected header later in the match.

Jose Mourinho took Tanguy Ndombele off at half-time in order to mix things up, which looked to be an unfortunate move after Giovani Lo Celso picked up a hamstring injury minutes into the second half.

Dele Alli, who can also play that number 10 creative role, was nowhere to be seen on the Tottenham bench, despite Mourinho being able to name nine substitutes today.

BBC revealed via the Match of the Day Twitter account that Dele Alli was not injured, simply claiming that the English midfielder was not selected by head coach, Mourinho.
