Thrashed 6-1 by Mauricio Pochettino's side in May, Leicester produced a performance more like that which took them to the Premier League title in 2015-16, leaving Spurs reeling after a third defeat in their last five league games. He looked very stable while defending not to mention dangerous in attack and at the tender age of 20, he looks to have attained the balance between attacking and defending exceptionally well.

The Lilywhtes have excelled in the Champions League, however, and have already qualified as group winners, with one group game to spare.

He said: "You're talking about Spurs losing 2-1, but they have had three 100% chances".

There's been a conspiracy-level theory floating around Tottenham that suggests that the release "Brave New World" was timed poorly, and that the revelations and stories about Pochettino and the 2016-17 season might have negatively impacted some of his players. And we were a little bit sloppy in the way that we conceded the first goal.

"I think in football, first of all you must compete, fight and be focused, and then of course the quality will come through".

Losses to Manchester United, Arsenal and a draw with West Bromwich Albion on the weekend had detailed the Lilywhites season, they had slipped to fifth in the league table and travelled to Leicester desperate for a win. He will now offer Eriksen the opportunity to be rested. When you are clear with everyone, the problem doesn't exist.

"We need to assess it and take responsibility".

While the book details the secrets of Tottenham's success, it also explains disagreements with key players such as Eric Dier during the campaign.

It's nothing strange in the book.

Pochettino demands fit players and but too many are struggling to get ahead of the curve, something the manager has acknowledged.

'It's only a risk when you lie.

The news that Toby Alderweireld would be sidelined until the New Year with the hamstring problem he suffered against Madrid went relatively under the radar, but Spurs have sorely missed the Belgian defender.

Christian Eriksen surged forwards and with Kane in hot pursuit to his right and Dele Alli beyond him, he chose the latter but the England international failed to connect properly and his effort rolled wide.

That came just before Kane reduced the deficit by seizing on a sharp, angled pass from Erik Lamela, The Argentine looked in remarkably good touch after his absence, but also picked up a yellow card for flailing his arm into Vicente Iborra's face.

He said: "It was a fantastic game for us".
