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.
