A late Harry Kane goal wasn’t enough as Tottenham fell to a 2-1 defeat at Leicester City in the Premier League.
Jamie Vardy put the hosts ahead early on with a well taken volley before a stunning Riyad Mahrez goal doubled the Foxes’ advantage just before half-time.

Erik Lamela’s introduction with 15 minutes to go was the catalyst for a late Spurs improvement. His through ball set up Kane, who lashed home to give the visitors hope.
But it wasn’t enough in the end. On Twitter, most Tottenham fans voiced their discontent following the game, while others saw some positives in the performance. Here are the best of the reactions.
Teams have figured us out now. Shut us down at Wembley and counter attack us away. Our league season will be over by Christmas at this rate.

Two worldies for Leicester, two missed sitters, two missed one on ones, a penalty that looked fairly stonewall on first viewing… just not our night tonight. I actually thought there were quite a lot of positives, not least the return of Lamela. #COYS

A total embarrassment from start to finish. We’re now in a battle for the top four when previously it looked a guarantee. Every player needs to take a look at themselves. Busy spell coming up and this needs to stop tonight. #THFC

What a weird, chaotic game of Premier League football. Moments of class punctuate a ragged, breathless free for all. Great goals from Leicester and bad misses from Spurs decided it

We had the chances, never took them.
Poor performance again.
Time for MP to get the cloth out and re-polish some turds.

If you want to challenge for the league title, you cannot afford to miss so many clear cut chances. Far too many ‘untouchables’ letting the side down.

Well at least Lamela is back. Bit of rotation/competition in attack is very much needed by the look of it. And let’s just hope we remember how to defend sooner rather than later

Weird game. Tottenham played OK (great second half) but terrible finishing VS two outrageous Leicester finishes the difference. Referee & time-wasting didn’t help.

Having a bit of a dip, here. We all knew this seasom would be tough, and so it’s proving.

Just going to keep focusing on my Lamela love. Other than him and our wonderful Harry there’s really not a lot to be happy about tonight. #COYS
