Tottenham Hotspur suffered a second straight loss when their Premier League title hopes took another devastating blow this afternoon.
Indeed, José Mourinho’s team was well beaten by another top four rival when Leicester City arrived in North London and took all three points with a 2-0 victory.
It comes just days after Spurs’ loss to Liverpool at Anfield and as a result they have now slipped to fourth place, about six points behind the current league leaders and defending champions.
The Foxes set up a clinic, recording more than twice as many number of shots (17) that the home team was able to make throughout the game.
They first took the lead with a Jamie Vardy penalty at halftime break before an own goal from Toby Alderweireld just before the hour ticked off misery.

“He always looked nervous on possession, needing an extra touch and his defense for Leicester’s second goal was lame, without even realizing that Vardy was behind him.”
furthermore, the £ 90k per week calamity successfully managed only two of the five dribble attempts and also fouled.
After his stinky against the Reds, Mourinho will surely be absolutely furious with what he saw of Sissoko, also in his own patch.
