‘Spurs Out-Foxed’

Host Richard Cracknell was joined by Lee McQueen, Jamie Brown from Daily Hotspur and John Wenham from Lilywhite Rose.

Tottenham handed Leicester a couple of early Christmas gifts, as Jamie Vardy’s penalty and Toby Alderweireld’s own goal took the Foxes to a 2-0 victory and second place in the Premier League table on Sunday.

At the end of an even first half, Serge Aurier, in what Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane described as a moment of “utter madness”, barged into Wesley Fofana in the Spurs box and, after a VAR check, a spot-kick was awarded, which Vardy (45+4) thumped home.

The Foxes thought they had gone two clear at the start of the second half, when James Maddison converted a long pass forward, but VAR spotted an offside. However, the otherwise impressive Alderweireld gave Leicester another helping hand on 59 minutes, turning Vardy’s header into his own net, after the striker out-jumped Moussa Sissoko.

The result compounds a bad week for Jose Mourinho’s side, who now have just one win in five Premier League games and sit fifth after Manchester United’s win over Leeds, but Leicester will spend Christmas as Liverpool’s nearest challengers, four points off top spot.
