Leicester boss Claude Puel revealed his frustration after watching his side slip to a 2-0 defeat against Tottenham. Son Heung-min sparked a dull game into life when he opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time with an excellent curling strike from 20 yards.
He then teed up Dele Alli to make it 2-0 just 13 minutes after the break – the midfielder’s 50th goal for the club – as Spurs wrapped up the points early.

Leicester, without the injured Jamie Vardy, lacked bite and never looked like scoring even before Son’s opener. They remain ninth, with boss Puel unhappy they failed to build on a solid start. “We have a regret of course.
I am frustrated as we started the game very well, we put in place a good structure,” he said. “We need more confidence around the box to give the right service.
It was a shame to have all these possibilities. “We conceded the goal and it was tough. It was difficult to come back in the game. They are one of the teams challenging for the title because they have a big squad and quality.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
