Leicester City were left stunned as Tottenham Hotspur stole the three points from the clutches of defeat in the final minutes of the game.

The Foxes were leading deep into the fifth minute of added time before a Steven Bergwijn double gave the visitors a win at the death.

Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel – 5

The Leicester City goalkeeper made some decent saves while also coming out for crosses more than usual, however, the positives were few and far between for the Dane. He still needs to be more commanding of his six-yard box with his reluctance to attack crosses leading to Harry Kane having an easy chance to score from a corner with the crossbar saving him from his blushes.

His passing was poor, giving the ball away multiple times in the final 10 minutes of the game and he wasn’t at his best in terms of shot-stopping either. Had it not been for some last-ditch defending, Schmeichel could well have conceded five goals in what is becoming concerning run of poor form from Leicester’s number one.

Luke Thomas – 8

Another positive performance from the academy graduate who is improving in leaps and bounds this season. Having an impact both in attack and in defence, Thomas had a commendable game before he was subbed off.

He made a goal-line clearance early in the first half to prevent the Tottenham from opening the scoring. Whilst in attack he was creating plenty of chances with enticing crosses into the penalty area. He could have had an assist to his name when his cross in the first half found Patson Daka, however, the Zambian striker was unable to head the ball home.

The only negatives to come from his game were his attempts at marking Kane from set-pieces, however that isn’t too surprising when you consider the height difference between the two.
