Tottenham are used to winning games late on this season, so it came as quite a shock when Leicester turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 victory at White Hart Lane. Spurs led through Andros Townsend’s fifth penalty of the season. The hosts held on until the 83rd minute when Jeff Schlupp equalised, before Leonardo Ulloa won it for the Foxes in stoppage time.
With Chelsea and Manchester City also losing, Tottenham have seemingly thrown away a good chance to win a trophy this term. But is the League Cup more important? Did Spurs deserve more from the game? Was Pochettino’s team selection sensible enough? Here’s how Twitter reacted.
As the FA Cup potentially opens up, Spurs concede. Perfect comic timing.

Has Eriksen scored yet?

With City and Chelsea going out, it might just be Spurs' year! Oh…

I'll let this one slide, IF Pochettino plays his best side on Wednesday. That game matters more than any Premier League one.

Disappointing result for #Spurs today, will have to make sure we get the job done at Bramall Lane on Wednesday and secure a trip to Wembley

The most frustrating thing is the missed opportunity. We should hold a 1-0 lead at home with 7 minutes to go against anyone.

No complaints with the result. Combination of an enterprising Leicester display and too much tinkering from Pochettino #coys

Didn't think we played particularly badly on the whole but second half was flat and even in the first Leicester had good chances.
