But in the fourth minute of injury time of the first half, Serge Aurier fouled James Justin in the box 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.

The team from the King Power were the more comfortable side as they maintained possession and breaking down all forms of Spurs attack.
