Leicester City 2-3 Tottenham: Leicester player ratings

tennis player

Leicester City looked set to grab the three points from Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur. But Steven Bergwijn had other plans, the Dutch winger came off the bench to score two late goals to hand Tottenham the win.

Spurs dominated the early proceedings and the opener looked more and more likely as the first half passed by. But Patson Daka scored in the 24th minute, totally against the run of play and handed Leicester the lead.

However, Tottenham were not behind for very long as Harry Kane levelled the proceedings in the 38th minute from a Harry Winks pass over the top. Kane should have scored his second of the game but failed to get his effort anywhere near the goal.

Conte replaced Emerson Royal with Matt Doherty at the half-time interval. Once again Spurs looked the likelier side to score again and kept piling on the pressure. But Leicester City took the lead again through Maddison in the 76th minute. The match looked to be done but Steven Bergwijn stuck a late equalizer and then grabbed the winner just two minutes later.

Leicester player ratings

Kasper Schmeichel: 6

The goalkeeper made a few very important saves to keep Leicester City in the game. He was left helpless by his defence for the three goals.

Hamza Choudhury: 6

He was the foxes’ best centre-back by a mile and he made some key tackles and interceptions.

Caglar Soyuncu: 4

Firstly he made some bad decisions in the game and was at fault for the Harry Kane equalizer. Secondly, he looked really shaky for the whole game.

Jannik Vestergaard: 4

Just like Soyuncu, he looked really shaky in defence and just struggled to get into the pace of the game.

Marc Albrighton: 6

Marc made a really important block in the first half and made some good passes to the forward players.

Luke Thomas: 6

Firstly the young left-back made a really impressive goal-line block to deny Kane. Secondly, he was taken off in the second half.

Youri Tielemans: 4

Very wasteful in possession and was completely overrun by the Spurs midfield.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall: 6

Showed real energy in the middle of the park and most importantly he kept on making driving runs with the ball into the Spurs half.

James Maddison: 7

Handed Leicester City the lead in the second half and troubled the Spurs backline with his set-pieces deliveries.

Ademola Lookman: 5

The forward dropped deep to influence the game but failed to have any real impact on the proceedings.

Patson Daka: 7

Kept on making runs beyond the Spurs backline and most importantly finished off the only real chance he got in the game.
