EPL : Leicester carry on with their title race

Robert Huth’s late header shocked Tottenham at White Hart Lane and gave Leicester an impressive 1-0 victory in the title race.


After 83 minutes of exhilarating Premier League football, with a string of chances for both sides, the Foxes centre-back nodded into the top corner beyond Hugo Lloris after being left unmarked from a corner.

The win puts Arsenal and Leicester City equal on points the only thing separating them is goal difference.

Both sides made extensive changes from the weekend, with Lloris, Kane and Dele Alli among seven returning players for Spurs, while Leicester changed nine, with Jamie Vardy returning from injury.

Spurs dominated the first 15 minutes and both Alli and Christian Eriksen had shots on goal before Kasper Schmeichel tipped a awkward Toby Alderweireld header away from the top corner

But Leicester hit back and the dynamic, vibrant combination of Vardy, Shinji Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez caused numerous problems for Tottenham’s defenders, with Okazaki exploiting an error from Kyle Walker to shoot just wide of the near post.

Lloris had to tip wide Danny Drinkwater’s superb first-time volley from distance before Schmeichel pushed wide another Eriksen shot from distance, also at full stretch, before half-time.
