Leicester City 2-1 Tottenham: Spurs fall at King Power Stadium

Leicester City came from behind to stun Tottenham 2-1 at King Power Stadium on Saturday 21st. 

An early goal from Harry Kane gave Spurs the lead as the game went for a break. However, the restart of the second half saw the hosts turn around the scoreline thanks to goals from  Ricardo Pereira and a rocket from James Maddison. VAR was very much in use as two goals, one from both teams were disallowed. 

Disallowed goal

Leicester opened the scoring in the 15th minute through Wilfried Ndindi. Gazzaniga spilled the ball from Tielemans’ shot and the rebound was bundled home by Ndidi after a scrum on the six-yard line but VAR was called into action. The goal was overturned as Ndidi/Perez who initially got to the rebound, were offside when the original ball was played by Tielemans. 

Kane goal

Son was played in on the shoulder of the last man and backheeled the ball to Lamela and Kane behind him. Kane took over but was knocked off balance by Soyuncu but refused to give up hope, and as he hit the deck hooked the ball into the top corner past a stranded Schmeichel. 

Disallowed goal

Son was tackled after being played clean through, the loose ball fell for Kane and he looked across the box to Aurier who hammered it into the bottom corner with a great finish. There was VAR check and Son was found to be in an offside position and the goal didn’t count. 

Leveller

Leicester's pressure finally paid off! Barnes slipped Vardy in down the left of the box, he pulled the ball across and it's hooked clear towards the edge of the box. Pereira was totally unmarked when the loose ball fell for him and he powered it home from 12 yards to level the scores.

Maddison goal

With five minutes remaining to stoppage time, Leicester took the lead through Maddison and it was what a hit. The Englands international took a touch from a pass off the left to set himself and rocketed the ball low into the bottom corner past Gazzaniga's despairing dive.
