Tottenham slipped to their second defeat of the season this afternoon at the King Power Stadium to Leicester City, a result which takes the Foxes above Spurs in the table.

Although both sides had their chances in the first half, Spurs looked the more composed side until the interval.

They struck in the 29th minute through a wonderfully taken a goal by Harry Kane, with the striker somehow managing to scoop the ball over Kasper Schmeichel despite being on his way down after receiving a push on the back.

The most pivotal moment in the game arguably came midway into the second half when Serge Aurier’s second goal was ruled out by the VAR as Son Heung-min was adjudged to have been millimeters offside in the build-up.

The home side buoyed by the disallowed goal soon scored the equaliser through Ricardo Pereira. Tottenham regained their composure after conceding the equalizer and went in search of a winner but it was Leicester who got it through a brilliant strike from James Maddison.

While Spurs fans on social media were left disappointed with the result, they seemed to be divided on who was to blame. While some blamed the VAR call, others pointed the finger on Mauricio Pochettino’s decisions.

Spurs Web Opinion

If VAR does not rule out Serge Aurier’s goal, then Spurs likely cruise to a win and this goes down as a fantastic away performance. Now, there will no doubt be major questions asked about the side. That is how fine the margins are in football. On a positive note, Spurs now have three really tough away games out of the way.
