In an incredibly frustrating night at White Hart Lane, Leicester grabbed a late winner to go joint-top of the Premier League, leaving Tottenham in fourth.

Spurs had the best of the chances from the early stages. Erik Lamela and Harry Kane were perhaps guilty of missing the hosts’ best opportunities, but in fairness, Mauricio Pochettino’s side did everything but score.

Perhaps it can be put down to bad luck, perhaps Tottenham need more striking options. Regardless, Robert Huth’s 83rd minute winner was painful viewing.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.

  1. We are predictable up front. Need to buy a different type of striker..more disruptive and challenging. We always seem to drop the ball when well placed. Sunderland win essential.

  2. Levy’s failures in the transfer market in not getting at least 1 other striker before the season started was always going to cost us and here we are! how many other premiership teams have only got one f uckin striker, it’s a joke the guy has always left us short season after season, we cannot just keep relying on Kane! sort it out Levy get 2 strikers and a midfielder that can pass the ball forward instead of backwards or to the side!

  3. Ill say it again, our manager is tactically hopeless.
    Levy and him should go. No extra fwrd 13 days into the window—absolutely hopeless!!

  4. How many corners did we get and yet not able to convert. How many soft undefended goals against us on corners against? Two in two games!!!!!. This is a shocking part if our game,why is that..defending set pieces and corners has always been a mighty problem..why do we look so exposed ? Why do other teams look so good against us with set plays ????
    Sort that out and just maybe we’ll get in top four.
    Don’t see a new striker coming..no point ,too risky …give young Josh the strikers role make Harry the number 10… Simole

    • Spot on, Rancid. I’ve been saying this for many seasons now and it has not improved much under Poch. I’ve queried whether we have a defence coach because we look vulnerable every time the opposition have a set-piece around our box, including corners. As you say, if we can sort this element of our play out, we will be a far better team. Eriksen’s dead ball kicks have been very poor of late too, often failing to clear the first defender.
      Last night we were straight out of the blocks and looking sharp but, as with a number of games this season, we failed to take advantage and let the opposition back into the game. Still vey much a work in progress for Poch.

  5. need another striker, harry got a yellow card could of been red, passing around edge of six yard box great fun, defenders so rude wont get out of way let spurs shoot.

  6. Come into my parlour said the spider to the fly,and you overconfident,rather arrogant Spurs supporters not to mention players fell for it!!
    PS- We were robbed in the cup but you’re welcome to it 🙂
