Leicester fans react on Twitter to Kasper Schmeichel’s performance v Tottenham

Leicester City - King Power Stadium

Leicester move joint with Arsenal following a 1-0 victory over Tottenham.

The Foxes secured a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening, with Robert Huth’s header claiming all three points.

After an entertaining game, it was a poor goal for Spurs to concede, seeing as no one picked him up from the corner and offered the German centre-half a free header.

It was a game of many chances, especially for Spurs, who dominated the ball but failed to take their chances.

Huth and Wes Morgan put in a great performance in the back-line, as well as full-backs Christian Fuchs and Danny Simpson, but it was goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel who was the true hero.

He put in a top class goalkeeping display, making five saves to ensure Spurs couldn’t make their dominance count.

Despite seeing their excellent goalscoring record cool off in recent weeks, it was Leicester’s third clean sheet in a row, and showed that the Foxes are realistic title contenders.

Following the game, fans took to Twitter to show their appreciation for Schmeichel, with his excellent performance central to the victory.
