Comments:

League position: 3rd Tottenham Hotspur had now won 20 of their opening 26 games of a league season for the first time since winning the last of their two league titles in 1960-61. Spurs became the first team to complete a run of 30 consecutive games in the top division without a draw since Portsmouth's run of 38 games from March 1928 to February 1929 in League Division One. With the score at one-nil and within seconds of coming on as a 59th minute substitute, Jamie Vardy's penalty (his first kick of the game) was saved by Hugo Lloris. It was the first penalty he had saved in the Premier League since denying Manchester City's Sergio Agüero on 18 October 2014.

Comments:

League position: 12th Leicester City had now lost four of their last five games in the Premier League. On the form table of the last six games in the Premier League, only bottom of the table Huddersfield Town (one) had taken fewer points than the Foxes' four. Jamie Vardy had now scored 29 goals in 52 games in the Premier League against the big six teams; three more than any other player since he made his Premier League debut in August 2014. Nampalys Mendy was originally named in the starting line-up before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Wilfred Ndidi was promoted to the starting XI with Kelechi Iheanacho taking his place on the bench.
