Spurs beat Foxes to stay in ti­tle hunt

Mid Day - - Sport -

LONDON: Tot­ten­ham kept alive their bid to gate-crash the Premier League ti­tle race as Davin­son Sanchez’s first goal for the club and Hugo Lloris’s penalty save in­spired a 3-1 win over Le­ices­ter yes­ter­day.

Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino’s side took the lead through Sanchez’s first half header, but they were in­debted to Lloris for keep­ing out Jamie Vardy’s spot-kick af­ter the in­ter­val at Wem­b­ley.

Chris­tian Erik­sen net­ted mo­ments later and although Vardy got one back, Son He­ung-min’s late strike en­sured third-placed Tot­ten­ham clinched a fifth win in their last six league games.

The north Lon­don­ers are five points off the top of the ta­ble as they try to catch pace-set­ters Liver­pool and Manch­ester City.

Tot­ten­ham are still out­siders to win their first English ti­tle since 1961.
