Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy rolled back the years – well, two years anyway – in a tight 2-1 win at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

Vardy netted the opener after just 13 minutes, courtesy of a superb, deft looping volley which came on the second anniversary of him netting for a record 11th Premier League game in a row.

However, the goal of the game, and arguably one of the goals of the season so far, came just before the break, with Mahrez producing a trademark curling strike after cutting inside from the right flank.

Quite the stunner!

Spurs would get one back in the second-half, with Harry Kane scoring with an instinctive effort with 12 minutes to go.

That goal came after a poor miss from Christian Eriksen from inside the six-yard box.

The visitors would then come close to getting an equaliser, with Fernando Llorente missing from close-range.

Indeed, Spurs’ continued wastefulness looks all the worse when viewed in quick succession…

However, in the end, Leicester would secure all three points, a result which sees them go ninth in the table.

Tottenham, on the other hand, have picked up just one point from their last three games, a worrying run of form which means they stay fifth, a point behind Arsenal having played a game more.
