Maddison Punishes Tottenham, Secures Leicester City’s 2-1 Comeback

LONDON – A late goal by James Maddison secured Leicester City a 2-1 win, as the Foxes had to step up to defeat visiting Tottenham during a Premier League matchday-6 contest at King Power Stadium.

Coach Mauricio Pochettino’s squad was punished as they failed to build on their first-half 1-0 lead and Tottenham has suffered its second domestic defeat so far.

The Spurs was the side that had the initiative in the early stages of the match when Son Heung-min tested the hosts’ goalkeeper in minute 3.

However, it was Leicester who scored first by Wilfred Ndidi, but the goal was canceled after consulting the video assistant referee (VAR).

With just one minute before the half-hour mark, England striker Harry Kane brought it home in style his fourth Premier League goal of the season, off a clever pass from Son.

The hosts tried to react, as Ricardo Pereira’s effort was not successful.

Tottenham also tried their luck and Kane had the best scoring chance ahead of the break, but goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was there with the save.

After the intermission, the Leicester squad was near again to draw level, but striker Jamie Vardy’s effort was denied by Spurs’ netminder Paulo Gazzaniga.

After being threatened, Tottenham rushed into the attack creating a good momentum that saw the team find the back of the net again in the 65th minute by Serge Aurier, but the goal was ruled out after getting back to VAR as well.

The game looked easy for the visiting side, but thanks to a series of rebounds in the opposite area, Pereira succeeded to net Leicester’s 1-1 goal in minute 69, and then Tottenham started to struggle.

The Foxes started to believe they could get the three points, and they achieved what they sought out thanks to a remarkable long-range shot by Maddison, just five minutes before injury time.

It was too late for Tottenham to even the score as Leicester knew how to maintain the status quo to secure the team’s third win of the season.

Leicester increased its points tally to 11, sitting provisionally in the second spot in the standings, while Tottenham is in the fifth place with eight points, pending the results of the remaining matchday contests.
