Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Tottenham vs Leicester city ended 2-0 in favour of the Foxes as Spurs lose grip on the Premier League table.

Jamie Vardy continued his good scoring form as he got the first while the Englishman forced Toby Alderweireld into an own goal It was a lovely end-to-end stuff as both sides created chances from the blast of the whistle but they could not convert.

But in the fourth minute of injury time of the first half, Serge Aurier fouled James Justin in the box as the referee had to take a second look at it on the VAR before awarding the penalty.

And Vardy made no mistake in the finish as he scored his 11th goal of the season to make it 1-0 for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Leicester would have been 2-0 up after James Madison latched on to a pass from Mark Albrighton to score a superb goal but the VAR ruled it as an offside.
