Five images that tell the story of Spurs’ clash with Leicester
Leicester’s trip to Spurs this season does not have quite the same riding on it as their matches last season. The title contenders from 2015/16 are no longer clashing directly at the top of the table, but it still presented a tricky, enticing fixture for Spurs.
The game flung one way to the other. It was meant to be fun and it provided all the drama we could have hoped for at the start of the day. Fired up players and two managers fully focused on the game made for the contest that we had expected to see at White Hart Lane. Neither side held anything back, there was not even the suggestion of keeping energy in reserve, it was a full-blooded contest for the entire 95 minutes or so that the players were on the pitch.
An eventual 1-1 draw was a relatively fair result. Leicester played in the way we expect Leicester to play now and Spurs played how Spurs play. No pretences, no caution, just two sides competing with their all.
