‘Poch needs to be criticised’, ‘Retarded team selections’ Fans Frustrated After Losing To Leicester

Tottenham were dealt a major blow as their hopes of winning a first ever Premier League title were dashed by a Leicester side that seems to be finding its feet under new manager Claude Puel.

Spurs had lost their last two away games and made it three in a row at the King Power Stadium. Goals from Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez did the damage early on before Harry Kane pulled one back for the side that could fall 16 points behind Manchester City should the leaders win their game in hand.

Tottenham look far from the side that defeated Real Madrid a few weeks ago and Mauricio Pochettino was scathing in his assessment that the side just did not turn up for the clash against the Foxes.

It was yet another slow start for us as Vardy scored a wonderful volley in the 13th minute before Mahrez scored a Mahrez-esque goal on the cusp of half-time. Kane pulled one back in the 71st minute but there was a glaring miss from Fernando Llorente that should have won us one point at least.

There was some good news though with Erik Lamela coming back and providing the assist for Kane’s goal but that was pretty much it for us.

What was more upsetting was the fact that a number of stars simply did not turn up and the hope of winning the title is long gone, even with nearly 6 months of the Premier League season left.

The only hope in the league for us is to continue fighting for a runners-up spot, once again, but with Liverpool and Chelsea getting some sort of form, that second position might be tough for us to achieve as well.

There were some brutal reactions from our fans and others on Twitter and here are just a few of them.

    Poch’s team selection last night was baffling. Why the hell play Sissoko in front of Son. Surely that smacks of someone who has hit the panic button.
