Premier League In Focus - Leicester vs Tottenham Preview

Tottenham's Harry Kane celebrates 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.

Leicester continue to impress under Claude Puel and the Foxes moved into the top 10 in the Premier League with a 2-1 home win against Tottenham.

Now fifth, Spurs could be down to seventh by the time they contend with a tricky trip to Watford on Saturday.

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 stunned Spurs after just 13 minutes with a brilliant volley lifted over the onrushing Hugo Lloris.

At times this felt like the Leicester City of two seasons ago, the Leicester who so wonderfully won the Premier League.

Tottenham were nearly level within five minutes as Kane set up Moussa Sissoko, who only had Kasper Schmeichel to beat, but the Leicester goalkeeper did well to block his shot with his legs.

Leicester could have sealed the three points early in the second period, only for Shinji Okazaki to make too much contact with his header after being spotted by Albrighton.

After 23 minutes, Harry Kane set off on a twisting run but saw his ambitious attempt to curl the ball past Schmeichel from the edge of the area fly high.

Schmeichel denied Dele Alli at the end of a quick counter-attack led by Christian Eriksen and City doubled their lead right on the stroke of half-time.

Arsenal of course managed to leapfrog Spurs this weekend after they got a last gasp victor against Burnley, and now Groves thinks that the top three is a real possibility for Asene Wenger's men - who of course missed out on the top four last season and are currently playing in the Europa League.
