Tottenham Hotspur locked horns with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to pick up a good result on the road. Spurs made a decent start to the game but conceded the opening goal in the 24th minute when Patson Daka scored with a composed finish. However, Harry Kane equalised for the North London outfit in the 38th minute as Spurs went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.

James Maddison regained Leicester’s advantage in the 76th minute after a wonderful team move from the home side. However, Steven Bergwijn came off the bench and netted two quick-fire goals in injury-time as Tottenham ended up securing a brilliant 3-2 win away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player fared during the match against the Foxes.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 6/10

The French keeper made a couple of solid saves but won’t be happy after conceding two goals during the 90 minutes.

RB: Emerson Royal – 6/10

He struggled to get a foothold in the game during the first half and got replaced at half-time.

CB: Japhet Tanganga – 7/10

Tanganga was strong in the air and made some important defensive contributions inside his half. He was also a threat at the other end of the field.

CB: Davinson Sanchez – 7/10

He cleared the danger when needed and made a few crucial interceptions at the back. Sanchez also orchestrated a couple of decent chances going forward.

CB: Ben Davies – 7/10

Davies got stuck in with some solid tackles to make life difficult for the opposition. He created one good chance in the final third.
