Tottenham overcome Leicester City’s challenge to stay in EPL title hunt

While Tottenham are still outsiders to win their first English title since 1961, their ability to stay in contention, despite injuries to key players Harry Kane and Dele Alli suggests they shouldn't be completely written off. "The way we conceded [chances] is more than we usually concede but I think the victory's fair".

A statement said the club are undergoing "remedial works on the safety systems" before they could move forward to the final stages of testing, leaving the door open to the possibility that Spurs could play their remaining home games at Wembley this season.

The South Korean went down in the penalty area under a challenge from Harry Maguire, becoming the fourth Tottenham player to be yellow carded for simulation this season.

"I am a person that always accepts the mistake but I think it was so odd the situation today. I said to him if he felt OK he can take the penalty, but it's not just the penalty that cost us".

"The problem is, I told Michael Oliver [about] the situation against Liverpool in the last minute that should have been a penalty".

"We came from a tough Christmas period when the teams in Germany and Spain were enjoying some holidays", he said.

Leicester, meanwhile, head into Sunday's game in stuttering form, with the Foxes having won only one of their last five Premier League games.

The track will compete for more Grammys , including song of the year, record of the year and best pop duo/group performance. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day will honor the late Aretha Franklin with a performance.

"Remember when we played Manchester City on a Monday and played West Ham at the London Stadium in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday". I think we are such nice people.

Leicester's positive start to the second half brought a golden opportunity to equalise with their 60th minute penalty.

Vardy had been warming up in preparation and was immediately introduced, jogging forward to take the ball from Maddison.

Vardy gave Leicester hope in the 76th minute, pouncing from close-range to convert Pereira's cross in typically predatory fashion.

Oliver Skipp charged down Ricardo Pereira's clearance, Fernando Llorente fed Eriksen, who added to his earlier assist by sending a low shot into the bottom corner in the 63rd.

But Son had the last word in the 90th minute as the winger raced clear to slot past Schmeichel for his 15th goal of the season.
