Leicester City handed Tottenham their second straight Premier League defeat on Sunday, following a 2 – 0 victory over the north Londoners.
Jamie Vardy converted a penalty to put Leicester in front on the stroke of half-time before Toby Alderweireld scored an own goal to pitch Spurs in a dicey situation.
A lacklustre performance from Mourinho’s men has seen them slip to Third position on the Premier League table, six point adrift leaders Liverpool who went 2 -1 past Spurs on Wednesday courtesy of Firmino’s late header.
Serge Aurier fouled James Justin in the box in the fourth minute as the referee had to take a second look at it on the VAR before awarding the penalty.
And Vardy made no mistake in the finish as he scored his 11th goal of the season to make it 1-0 for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Leicester would have been 2-0 up after James Madison latched on to a pass from Mark Albrighton to score a superb goal but the VAR ruled it as an offside.
But right on the hour mark, the Foxes were 2-0 up as Vardy headed straight at Alderweireld who put the ball into the back of his own net as it counted as an own goal.
Harry Kane had his shot saved by Kasper Schmeichel as another header from the Englishman went into the hands of the Danish goalkeeper.
Spurs’ effort in pulling one back were futile as Leicester caught the Lily Whites on a counter attack on several occasions as it ended 2-0.
