Leicester City boss Claude Puel: 'We should have beaten Tottenham Hotspur'

Claude Puel rued Leicester City's inability to manage the game after seeing his side beaten 5-4 in a Premier League classic against Tottenham. In the Champions League we filled Wembley and witnessed remarkable games against Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

A draw would have dropped Tottenham below Liverpool into fourth spot but Kane had the final say when he cut in from the left to curl a trademark effort past Leicester goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic. Kane raced clear and slotted home to make it 1-1 as he tried to win the PL Golden Boot for the third-straight season.

Two minutes later, Lamela pulled one back as he tapped the ball in from close range and reduced the deficit to 3-2.

Spurs sought another response, but they had Hugo Lloris to thank for keeping them in the game after fine counter-attacking work from Iheanacho and Vardy saw Demarai Gray go through one-on-one.

After a poor header from Eric Dier, Iheanacho picked the ball up, shrugged off Wanyama's challenge and launched an effort from 25 yards (meters) that rifled into the top corner.

There was absolutely nothing Lloris could do about Kelechi Iheanacho's strike that did extend Leicester's lead two minutes after the restart.

We talked about our group, that we were only going to make a trade if we felt that the trade was going to upgrade us or help us. Similarly, defenseman Christian Djoos sat out Washington's first two games but played in the other 10.

With the scores level at 4-4, Vardy slammed in an equaliser for Leicester after a deft pass by Mahrez.

Game over? No. Harry Kane had other ideas.

- Kane has reached 30 Premier League goals for the first time in his career - the first Englishman to do so since Kevin Phillips in 1999-2000 (also, 30). An 19th PL goal of the season from Vardy gave Leicester the lead.

"We should have won after scoring four times away, particularly after leading 3-1", he said in quotes reported on Leicester's official Twitter account.
