Leicester fans have taken to Twitter to react after full-back Ricardo Pereira made a huge error against Tottenham on Sunday, which handed the initiative to the north Londoners almost immediately after Jamie Vardy missed a penalty to equalise.
The Portuguese international attempted to play the ball out from the back under little pressure, before it was intercepted in a dangerous area for the Foxes right on the edge of their own box.
Fernando Llorente then teed up Christian Eriksen for the Dane to smash the ball beyond his international teammate Kasper Schmeichel and double Spurs’ lead, and pretty much end the game as a contest.

The King Power Stadium faithful have now witnessed their summer signing make two huge errors in back-to-back games, after the full-back conceded possession to Paul Pogba last week for the midfielder to set up Marcus Rashford to score.
Understandably, the Leicester fans on Twitter are annoyed at the 25-year-old, as they felt they could’ve got something against Mauricio Pochettino’s men…

Two weeks in a row Ricardo has cost us goals

Ricardo needs to be dropped, another mistake leading to a goal

#lcfc 3v1 flattering. City played well. Spurs clinical City weren't. But for another poor Ricardo clearance and some awful misses we should've had something. Feel for the manager but you've got to start Vardy. All for trying new things but not that away at Spurs

We honestly don’t help ourselves there. Far from like for like mistakes but Ricardo failing to get the ball gone just like against Utd.
