Leicester hold on to defeat Spurs

Jamie Vardy scores against Tottenham

Tottenham were left ruing a host of missed chances as Leicester held out to move into the top half of the table with victory at the King Power.

A deft lob from Jamie Vardy and a curling shot from Riyad Mahrez gave the Foxes a healthy half-time lead.

Christian Eriksen contrived to volley wide from six yards out before Harry Kane rifled in with 12 minutes to go.

Fernando Llorente then stabbed over the top from close range as the visitors hunted an equaliser in vain.

More to follow.
