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.
Such a soft goal to concede after such a gruelling match. Very disappointing but this is just what Leicester do. Ranieri is brilliant.

FT. The reason that's so poor is the number of chances – you can't expect to miss that many any survive. 3rd PL defeat of the season.

2nd league game in a row Pochettino takes off Eriksen & things fall apart in attack. It's not a coincide.

3 times we've played Leicester this season and not won one of them. Credit to Leicester but a reality check right there.

Huge opportunity lost. Leicester fast becoming a bit of a bogey team.

A classic case of not taking your chances & being punished for a momentary lapse at the other end. Fair play to Leicester who never gave up.

We've been very good all season, not always had enough of an edge. Defending cost us tonight. Cheap.

#THFC only have themselves to blame. Alright start, should've converted pressure. Wasted several other decent chances and let in a soft one.

How many opportunities can we afford to keep missing? So,so disappointing.

Just leaving the lane. We are utterly toothless if Harry doesn't play well. It's like AVB all over again. Desperately need another finisher.

If Spurs finish below this Utd team this season I will give up on football. Had the chances tonight, didn't take them. Time for another run.

Alright Maurcio you've made your point. Daniel will buy you another striker now.

Cue anger aimed at Levy now. Wasn't that long ago everything was rosy in garden. As shit as it feels right now we still work in progress

Much to be positive about this season, but we really need some options up top and be more ruthless with chances
