Leicester nearly took the lead on the ninth minute with a powerful Wes Morgan header which was cleared by Danny Rose who was defending the front post for Spurs, as the Foxes settled into the game.

Leicester were delighted to be 2-0 up at half-time and dug in firmly for the second period, conceding to Harry Kane late on but holding on for three points.

Their fast start was soon rewarded with the opening goal inside 12 minutes.

Hugo Lloris has been criticised in the past for rushing out of his goal a little to early and he was exposed once more by Mark Albrighton's through ball, from which Vardy ran onto and lofted a calm finish beautifully over the Frenchman.

The usual suspects were on the scoresheet - for both sides.

Tottenham then had a brilliant chance to equalize on the counter following a Leicester corner. "In every position, they have great players", he continued.

In an effort to hold onto the point Puel replaced Riyad Mahrez with Ben Chilwell with 20 minutes remaining at the London Stadium, a decision that frustrated the Algeria global.

"I don't know when they can come back into the team", he added.

With 15 minutes to go, Tottenham and Eriksen wasted a golden opportunity to get themselves back into the game.

He was soon replaced by Erik Lamela, who instantly made his mark by playing in Kane to rifle a right-foot shot past Schmeichel to halve the deficit.

Fellow substitute Fernando Llorente should have equalised three minutes later but somehow poked Serge Aurier's driven cross over the crossbar from inside the six-yard box.
