This came as a shocker to many who had thought that Leicester City would grab a win after maintaining their lead till the 90th minute of the game against an Antonio Conte side who did not take their chances earlier in the game.

Steven Bergwijn extends Antonio Conte’s unbeaten run to nine games in the Premier League with his two goals in 80 seconds.

Tottenham Hotspur would have to prepare for their next premier league fixture against Chelsea, who have managed to beat them twice in the Carabao Cup semifinals, even with their poor run of form.

Leicester City have struggled in recent times to keep a clean sheet and also maintain leads in the game. The future of Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City has continued to be a key topic of discussion in the football community.
