Tottenham had to battle hard for the win against Leicester City but Spurs stayed in the race for the Premier League title.

The Foxes had the best chances of the game early on but Davinson Sanchez calmed some nerves after scoring his first goal for Spurs.

The second half started with the Foxes being awarded a soft penalty. That certainly got the crowd upset as the referee had incorrectly booked Son Heung-min for diving in the first half. However, Hugo Lloris saved well from substitute Jamie Vardy.

Christian Eriksen scored from outside the box to give us a two-goal lead, however, Leicester were not going to lie down, and Vardy did score with more than 10 minutes left.

The Foxes kept on pounding the defence but one last minute break from Son was enough to seal the win. The South Korean ran more than half the length of the field and calmly slotted past Kasper Schmeichel to ensure that three points came home.

Son was brilliant in the game but so was Lloris, and here are the player ratings from the game.

Tottenham Player Ratings

Hugo Lloris – 8.5/10

Lloris couldn’t do much about the goal he conceded, but he came up big with a great save from Harvey Barnes and also saved Vardy’s penalty.

Kieran Trippier – 6/10

Trippier struggled to keep Barnes in check and could have done a better job at the back.

Davinson Sanchez – 7.5/10

The Colombian scored his first goal for Tottenham but had to work hard to contain the Leicester City attack throughout the afternoon.

Jan Vertonghen – 6/10

The Belgian gave away the penalty and didn’t have a great game.

Danny Rose – 7.5/10

Rose had a shot saved by Schmeichel but kept on plugging away as he tried to help out the attack. He did pick up a minor knock and was subbed off later on.

Christian Eriksen and Harry Winks

Harry Winks – 7/10

Winks did a decent job in the midfield, but this wasn’t his greatest performance.

Moussa Sissoko – 8.5/10

Sissoko was outstanding in the midfield and was ready to run with the ball to take the pressure off the team.

Oliver Skipp – 6/10

The youngster didn’t have much to show from the game, but he did play a role in our second goal.

Christian Eriksen – 8/10

Eriksen provided the cross for Sanchez and even scored an important second goal to calm some nerves at Wembley.

Son Heung-min – 8/10

The South Korean was incorrectly booked in the first half and should have been awarded a penalty, but he came up huge with an important goal right at the death.

Fernando Llorente – 6/10

Llorente tried to be a presence up front and won several headers, but it didn’t lead to a goal. He was replaced later on by Victor Wanyama.

Substitutes

Toby Alderweireld – 6/10

The Belgian was brought on to change the formation to a back-three, but it didn’t really work as Leicester did a lot of good work.

Victor Wanyama – NA

Came on late to give us more protection as the Foxes looked to score a goal.

Spurs transfer news: Arsenal set to beat Tottenham in landing Dani Ceballos

Football.london reports that Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos.

The 22-year-old was one of the stars for Spain in their U21 Euro winning squad, the report claims that the midfielder could be sold in the summer after Real made several big signings.

The report adds that AC Milan and Liverpool are also interested in the 22-year-old, however, AS (h/t Football.london) claimed that Spurs had agreed on a loan deal to land the Spaniard.

However, the outlet adds that Ceballos will reject a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and join the Gunners instead (h/t Football.london).

The report adds that the interest from Unai Emery was the key to them landing Ceballos, and the Spaniard wants to play at the Emirates Stadium.

A blow for Tottenham’s summer plans

Ceballos would do a great job under Mauricio Pochettino, and it is interesting to note that Arsenal seem to be winning the race for the Spaniard.

The Gunners do not have Champions League football on their side, and the report adds that Ceballos wants to start games regularly next season.

The 22-year-old wasn’t picked regularly under Zinedine Zidane last season, and he might get more games under Emery than Pochettino. Spurs have only signed Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke in the summer, and can do with another quality midfielder joining the side.

Not Trippier – La Liga giants interested in another Tottenham star as well

Spurs transfer news: Atletico Madrid interested in Christian Eriksen

Atletico Madrid might be close to landing Kieran Trippier, however, he isn’t the only Tottenham star they are eyeing (h/t Football.london).

The Evening Standard (h/t Football.london) claims that Christian Eriksen is in the sights of the La Liga side as they search for a playmaker.

The report adds that Real Madrid are also interested in the 27-year-old Dane, who has just one year left on his current deal.

The midfielder had claimed he wanted to take up a new challenge after the Champions League final, however, he still is a Tottenham player.

Atletico have seen several players leave in the summer, with Rodri joining Manchester City. Juanfran also exited the club, and the biggest transfer has to be that of Antoine Griezmann’s.

The French attacker completed his move to Barcelona recently, and it will be interesting to see who Atletico can sign before the start of the season.

Will Eriksen fit into Atletico’s style?

The Dane is one of the most creative players in the Premier League and would do well at a top club.

Atletico aren’t known for their intricate style of play in the final third, and it is difficult to see how Eriksen would fit into Diego Simeone’s plans.

Staying at Tottenham would be a better decision for the Dane than joining Atletico, however, it will be interesting to see if Simeone’s team submits a quality offer for the Dane.

It would be great to keep Eriksen at the club and extend his deal, but the next best option is to sell him to a non-Premier League club.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham committed to signing Ryan Sessegnon

The Telegraph reports that Tottenham are committed to signing Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

The 19-year-old is one of the brightest talents in the English game but saw his side suffer relegation last season.

Sessegnon was inconsistent at Fulham and ended up playing under three managers in the span of 12 months.

Danny Rose Tottenham

The English youngster is versatile enough to play as a leftwinger or as a left-back, and the report claims that Tottenham see the 19-year-old as a long-term successor of Danny Rose.

Tottenham’s Rose was one of our better performers in the previous campaign and started in the Champions League final against Liverpool.

However, the Englishman hinted he could leave in the summer after claiming that Tottenham sell off players who reach a certain age.

Fulham need to sell Sessegnon soon

The report adds that Fulham have to sell Sessegnon in the summer, with the English youngster having just one year left on his current deal.

Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon also prefers a move to Tottenham, according to the Telegraph, and hopefully, we can make him our third signing of the summer.

Tottenham could use someone of Sessegnon’s ability and the English youngster should grow under Mauricio Pochettino.

It will be interesting to see if Sessegnon plays as the left-back at Tottenham. His best performances came in the attacking positions, and we could use a quick and tricky winger in the team.

Spurs transfer news: Fans react to Atletico Madrid agreeing on a deal for Trippier

Sky Sports claims that Atletico Madrid have agreed on a €24m move for Kieran Trippier.

The English defender is set to be in Spain on Wednesday to complete a medical with the La Liga club, and the report claims that the deal could be finalised by the weekend.

The report adds that Tottenham were offered attacker Angel Correa in the deal, but Tottenham opted for a cash deal.

The English defender had an inconsistent campaign for Spurs last time around but no one can doubt his commitment to the cause. The right-back came off a wonderful World Cup campaign with the Three Lions, but could not carry that form into the club season.

Tottenham left with a minor problem

Spurs would only have Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters as the senior right-backs in the side should Trippier leave. That could be a problem given that Aurier’s previous season was littered with injuries.

Spurs could do with another right-back coming in and providing cover for the duo.

Many fans highlighted that Trippier just could not cut it at Tottenham while some were pleased that Spurs were getting a good deal for the Englishman. Some fans were supportive of Trippier’s decision to take up a new challenge, and here are a few reactions to the transfer:
