Leicester City's Claude Puel charges Riyad Mahrez to show more consistency

Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur

The Foxes were rewarded for an impressive first-half performance with goals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, before Harry Kane pulled one back to set up a tense finale in the East Midlands.

In the last few seasons, it has become de rigueur for clubs who have unsafe attacking potentials to be closed out by oppositions at home.

Spurs were unable to rescue a point, though, and any chances they had of mounting another title challenge appear over as they could be 16 points behind leaders Manchester City come this time on Wednesday.

"I think he was a little frustrated in the second half without the possibility to get on the ball and to play", said Puel.

The recalled Rose was then in the right place to clear a Wes Morgan header from close to the goal-line following a corner, but the visitors were behind on 13 minutes.

Vardy put the hosts ahead after 13 minutes, cleverly lobbing a volley over Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris after being put through by Marc Albrighton's chipped pass.

Spurs responded well after the early setback and nearly found an immediate equalizer, but Moussa Sissoko's strike was half-saved by Kasper Schmeichel, before Vicente Iborra finished the job to clear off the line for the Foxes.

Tottenham were unable to muster a late leveller, with Rose seeing a penalty shout turned down in added time and Fernando Llorente fluffing his lines at the back post, meaning that they have lost three in a row on their travels for the first time since March 2014. It was a trademark finish from the Algerian. Well it is now despite their second-half efforts and a host of missed chances when they should have actually salvaged this.

Lamela made an immediate impact, sliding a ball down the right side of the area for Kane who finished emphatically with a fiercely-struck shot into the roof of the net.
