Vardy and Mahrez fire Leicester to victory over Spurs

  • Pochettino We lacked fight

Germany worldwide Huth has not played this season after undergoing ankle surgery in the summer while James has been absent since September due to an Achilles issue.

Leicester's Jamie Vardy, right, celebrates with Leicester's Danny Simpson after scoring during the English Premier League soccer match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, England, Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017.

Nigeria global Wilfred Ndidi put up a fine performance as Leicester City defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in their English Premier League fixture on Tuesday. "We are playing a match four days after the last".

Spurs looked to rally as they pressured the Leicester defense, although Schmeichel and the back four in front of him held firm, resisting the pressure the visitors were beginning to apply, whilst the threat of Vardy and Mahrez the counter still gave Spurs something to think about defensively. For all of Tottenham's play however, they were heading into the break 2-0 down courtesy of a spectacular Mahrez goal.


The Foxes have lost just two of their last 11 games in all competitions. But it did not feel like the Tottenham Hotspur of then, who ran them so close.

He had been quiet again in this match before he collected the ball out on the right, drifted towards the area and curled a lovely left-foot shot beyond Lloris and into the far top corner of the net.

Mahrez has made no secret of his desire to leave Leicester and saw moves to Arsenal, Barcelona, Chelsea and Roma fall through in the summer as the club's £45m (€50.2m) valuation priced out those outfits. Three times in the opening two minutes Leicester tried to get Vardy in behind the Spurs defence but on each occasion the final ball was just lacking. "It's a good thing when a player is not happy. I'm sure he will show his quality for the next game".

"Riyad, like all the other players, have to find good consistency in their game - game after game. It is a good balance between them both".
