This Fixture, That day: The Story of the Foxes stealing a point at White Hart Lane

Janssen heads the ball

Tottenham will travel to Leicester city tonight, in what is potentially a dead rubber. Tottenham though will remember their late collapse from last season and will look to finish on a high. Leicester City have recovered well under Craig Shakespeare and will look to finish in top half of the table. The last clash between these two sides took place at White Hart Lane on Match Day 10.

Spurs came on the back of nine matches unbeaten run in the premier league and the defending Champions were still looking for their first point on the road. Tottenham were without their star striker Harry Kane and it proved costly for them. Kasper Schmeichel was in great form as the Dane stopped everything that was thrown at him by the Spurs attack.

Vincent Janssen put the spurs ahead with a well-taken penalty just before the half-time interval. It was the first goal for Janssen in Premier League. The joy was short-lived for the Spurs as Musa immediately equalized after half time break. The match was thoroughly dominated by Spurs but was undone by some questionable finishing. Spurs took a whopping 22 shots and had 64 % possession.

The draw was a great result for the foxes as they won their first point on the road. Surprisingly Leicester are one of the only two sides (Liverpool being the other one) to take away any points from the White Hart Lane this season.

Jan Vertonghen clattered the crossbar with a late header and the desperate Spurs were left with another “What if” moment.  Just like their title chase, the Spurs fell agonizingly short on that night.
