Same again for Claude Puel as Leicester take on Tottenham

Mahrez will have the opportunity to put Friday night's disappointment behind him when Tottenham visit the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.

Harry Kane, who had a loan spell at Leicester as part of his development nearly five years ago when the Foxes were in the Championship, pulled a goal back late on.

Spurs, now without a point on their top-flight travels in two months, could not find a way through in the remainder to leave them fifth in the table and desperately out of form.

Leicester nearly took the lead on the ninth minute with a powerful Wes Morgan header which was cleared by Danny Rose who was defending the front post for Spurs, as the Foxes settled into the game.

Mahrez made it 2-0 on the stroke of halftime when he ran down the right on a counter-attack, cut inside defender Jan Vertonghen, and curled a left-foot shot into the far corner.

Spurs were struggling to get going as Leicester set the tempo, but they nearly levelled when Kasper Schmeichel got a touch to Mousa Sissoko's shot and Vicente Iborra cleared off the line.

During his recent Asia trip, he tweeted that he was "forced to" watch "fake" CNN , claiming that he has not done so in months. Comey explained hours later that he included the picture because he likes it and it reminded him of his favorite Bible verse.

Leicester could have sealed the three points early in the second period, only for Shinji Okazaki to make too much contact with his header after being spotted by Albrighton.

Harry Kane has scored 10 goals in nine career appearances against Leicester City in all competitions - including four in one game in May.

With half an hour gone, the Londoners came close again when Christian Eriksen played in Dele Alli, but Schmeichel did well to block.

Kane's deadly finish 11 minutes from time set up a grandstand finish, however, rifling the ball into the roof of the net after peeling off Harry Maguire inside the box.

Arsenal of course managed to leapfrog Spurs this weekend after they got a last gasp victor against Burnley, and now Groves thinks that the top three is a real possibility for Asene Wenger's men - who of course missed out on the top four last season and are currently playing in the Europa League.
