Leicester City returned with a precious victory over Tottenham Hotspur with two unanswered goals in the match hosted by Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday evening, as part of the 14th round of the Premier League matches.
Leicester City got a penalty kick in the second minute of stoppage time after Aurier handicapped Fofana, and the referee needed to refer to the VAR video technology to calculate it, and Vardy implemented it successfully, ending the first half with Leicester advancing with a single goal for the guests.
Leicester City’s second goal came in the 60th minute after Albrighton sent across, and Vardy lifted her header, which hit Alderferfield and changed direction, bluffing Lloris and entering the net.
Goalkeeper Schmeichel defeated a group of Spurs attacks, blocking two good chances to score from Kane in the 61st minute and Son in the 71st minute.
Therefore, Tottenham failed to achieve victory in the third game in a row in the league, after a draw against Crystal Palace and a loss against Liverpool.
With this result, Leicester raised its score to 27 points to rise to second place, while Tottenham stuck to 25 points in fourth place.
Jose Mourinho reduces the opponent’s victory
Tottenham Hotspur coach Jose Mourinho downplayed two goals scored by Leicester City, in the Foxes’ victory over the Spurs.
Mourinho said at the press conference after the match: “The penalty kick did not come from a stolen attack, we committed it, and it was not the result of something great, but rather it came out of context at a time that was the best for us in the first half.”
He added, “We started the game badly. We played a poor level in the first 20 minutes. There are negative issues related to spaces, pressure and behavior, which I do not like. Then we changed the matter and adapted to us, and we had a period of control and creating opportunities, and the penalty kick came out of context.”
He continued about the second half: “They did not cause trouble either. They scored a goal against Toby, and I don’t remember anything else. I remember Schmeichel made a great save, yes we did not create 15 chances, but they defended well.”
