Three things we learnt from Tottenham’s draw with Leicester

Last season Tottenham were the side to put up the best fight as the Foxes rampaged to an unexpected league title, this season the clash is one of less importance as Tottenham tried to regain their spot in the top four and Leicester sought to sneak back into the top half, but both sides were forced to settle for a point at White Hart Lane.

Spurs dominated the first half but were perhaps fortunate to benefit from a controversial refereeing decision to give them a penalty just before the break, with Vincent Janssen scoring his second goal in a week and his third of the season from the resulting spot kick.

The Foxes anger was clear as they came racing out at the start of the second half, with Ahmed Musa drawing the scores level just three minutes in. Musa showed pace and guile to prod past Hugo Lloris from close range.

Both sides continued to fight for a point but neither could do enough to find a winner despite a number of chances falling to both sides. Claudio Ranieri will be the happier of the two managers to have taken a point in a tough clash at White Hart Lane.
