Tottenham Hotspur welcomed Leicester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier today as they hoped to earn maximum points in front of their home fans. Spurs made a quick start to the game and got themselves ahead in the 22nd minute courtesy of Harry Kane’s powerful header. The North London giants sat on their lead well and went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.
Heung-min Son doubled Tottenham’s advantage at the hour mark before going on to score again in the 79th minute with a great strike. Leicester scored a consolation via Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal in injury-time as the match finished 3-1 in favour of Antonio Conte’s men.
Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player performed during the match against the Foxes.
GK: Hugo Lloris – 6/10
The French keeper made one decent save during the game but won’t be pleased after conceding such a late goal.
CB: Cristian Romero – 7.5/10
Romero was a rock at the back as he performed his defensive duties quite well. He even made two good runs going forward.
CB: Eric Dier – 7/10
Dier cleared his lines when required and was a threat at the other end as well.
CB: Ben Davies – 7/10
He earned the ball back a couple of times and made two decent runs with the ball as well.
RM: Emerson Royal – 7/10
Emerson didn’t do much wrong at the back and completed one good dribble down the right flank.
