POST MATCH: Leicester City 2 Tottenham 1

The media and many on this forum were getting giddy ahead of the Yannited match, and then we produced our worst performance of the season. I loved the game on Saturday, but if Aurier's goal had stood we'd have lost, would now be in mid-table, would have failed to beat three average 'big 6' teams, etc etc.

 

Early days. But lets leave the talk of top 4 out, and leave talk of top 6 until Christmas 

 

Also wanted to give huge kudos to BR. While it was probably the VAR decision that sparked the comeback, his change to a diamond at the same time was pivotal. Our three were being outmuscled and overrun by Spurs' three (Maddison and Tielemans were quite poor defensively) but from then on our four bossed their three completely. 

 

Still looks a major mistake not to have signed a game-changing, goal-scoring winger in the  summer.

A genuine quality winger in with this squad and I'd be hugely confident of top 6. It was a massive oversight not to get one in, especially given what we've seen of Perez thus far. 

 

Can see us splashing the cash if we are well placed in January.

He is definitely better in a two. He is one of those players I think, where a lot of the time his good work goes unnoticed, and when he does play a poor pass or turnover possession, it is noticeable!  

This season he seems to be playing deeper, or perhaps with less freedom to go forward. Could be to do with Maddison performing better and being the focus of or attack from midfield. Hes still playing well just not scoring/assisting as he did last season, so people think hes off form. The tackle and through ball to vardy yesterday was class, and he was involved in the build up to a lot of our chances

Don’t really all get the Spurs hate to be fair - can’t find it in myself to hate a team that matter so little. 

 

I have to admit, though, that I find them endlessly funny. They truly are the gift that keep giving.

Much improved performance compared to  man utd.

much more positive, plenty of possession and chances.

maddison was outstanding.

Still worrying that we seem unable to  keep a clean sheet. We always look like we've got one brainfart in us each  game that costs a goal.

Against all of this,  we probably couldn't have played them at a better time, they looked flat and tired.

That being said the finest of margins stopped us going to 2-0 down.

We looked much  better and balanced after praett came on,  with maddison behind the front two.

Poch  said 'spurs dominated', really? Hahahahahahaha

 

for all the 'obliging Leicester 'posts:

 

First Ricardo goal of the season.

First Maddison goal of the season.

First time in  45 PL games we have won after being 1-0 down at halftime.

If we maintain this level of defensive solidity over the whole season we will finish top 4. Mind you, we’re going to win the league so no worries really.

Some interesting Vox Pops from Leicester fans and Spurs fans alike.

 

One, pre-game, saying they (Spurs) need to win something this year - "definitely should go for the League Cup"....

Great video that. The good old Leicester fan at around 6.00m followed by the plastic spurs fan (who's from Leicester - and clearly regrets his life choices). Decent Spurs fan (and I don't say that often) after that though.
