Tottenham and Leicester City played out a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane, which was the 4th draw for Pochettino’s men in 5 games.
Last season’s main title contenders went head to head for the first time this season and shared the points after what was a mildly entertaining match, with goals coming in each half from Victor Janssen and Ahmed Musa.
Something has to give… #TotLei

It took until the 44th minute for Spurs to take the lead after a number of missed chances. Victor Janssen scored his second penalty in as many games to send the Londoners up on the brink of half time.

3 – All of Vincent Janssen’s goals for Spurs since joining the club have come from the penalty spot. Converted.

That Janssen is the new soldado

Spurs have eventually got the penalty their constant diving deserved. #TOTLEI

Janssen couldn’t be more of a Soldado if he tried. Proper penalty merchant.

The second half started much better than that of the first, and the Champions came back flying with summer signing Ahmed Musa bringing the Foxes level.
2 – Ahmed Musa has scored in back-to-back PL games, after failing to score in his first five league games at Leicester. Equaliser.

You cant be serious

Ahmed Musa’s goal at Tottenham was the first Spurs have conceded from open play in the Premier League this season. Nine-and-a-half games in.

GOAL! Tottenham 1-1 Leicester.
Musa levels for the visitors – and takes a hefty whack in the process! pic.twitter.com/olUWD0V8Vc

The Spurs faithful weren’t quite pleased with the draw. Even though they were coming up against the reigning champions, most of them saw it as 2 points dropped rather than one earned after their 4th draw in 5 games.

Victor Janssen hasn’t gotten off to the brightest start in the Premier League, and the absence of Harry Kane and Eriksen virtually being a spectator are proving costly for the Spurs.
5 x without a win, 4 games without a goal from open play, praying Kane’s the difference but fear lack of game-changer is haunting us.#THFC

Spurs have drawn more games than any other PL side – 17 – since start of 2015-16. And, without Kane, can be a bit blunt.

We all wondered what would happen last season if Harry Kane got injured. This. This is what happens

Gotta be beating teams like that at home. This unbeaten thing becoming more of a negative than a positive these days. #COYS

Is it really down to Kane missing? I don’t think so. How many chances in these games have we created? Creativity is what is missing #COYS

Eriksen really needs a kick up the backside. Not impressed with him so far this season. Hurts even more when you know how good he can be.
— Spurs In The Blood (@SpursInTheBlood) October 29, 2016
Eriksen hasn’t scored a freekick since October 4th of last year. I don’t even get excited when he stands over them anymore.
— Jake. (@YedIin) October 29, 2016
Would much rather give Winks a chance to play higher up the pitch or Dembele than play Eriksen from the start again next week.
— Craig Brown (@THFC_Browny) October 29, 2016
Eriksen had such a bad game today. It’s not all down to one player, obvs, but he bottled headers, challenges, his set pieces were bad…
