Spurs 1 Leicester 1

Vincent Janssen scored his first Premier League goal in our colours but it wasn’t enough to secure the three points as Leicester City hit back for a draw at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.
It was a thoroughly entertaining match from start to finish, played with real tempo and passion throughout and one which we shaded in terms of possession and chances created, but we just couldn’t find the winner.

Moments after Dele Alli had crashed a shot against the crossbar, Janssen was upended by Robert Huth to win a penalty on the stroke of half-time and then took responsibility himself, drilling the spot-kick past Kasper Schmeichel to give us a 44th-minute lead.
But the reigning Premier League champions were level three minutes after the interval when Jamie Vardy’s cross was slotted home at the back post by Ahmed Musa.
That made for an enthralling second half in which both sides showed plenty of attacking intent in search of a winner. Christian Eriksen had three efforts saved by Schmeichel, Jan Vertonghen headed against the crossbar, Andy King and Leonardo Ulloa went close with late headers while the last touch of the game saw
Danny Rose fire into the side-netting – leaving it all square at 1-1 at the final whistle.
