Watch the best of the action from City's 2-1 victory over Spurs in the Premier League on Saturday...

Galvanised by an electric King Power Stadium atmosphere, Leicester City's first team climbed to third in the Premier League with a brilliant 2-1 comeback victory over Spurs on Saturday.

After seeing Wilfred Ndidi's early effort was ruled out by VAR, the Foxes went behind in the 29th minute as Harry Kane burst into the 18-yard box before executing a classy finish.

Rodgers' hosts seemed to have conceded another midway through the second half when Serge Aurier sent a drive past Kasper Schmeichel, but Son Heung-min strayed narrowly offside.

Boosted by a decisive VAR call in their favour, Leicester burst into the life with Ricardo Pereira bundling home a close-range effort before James Maddison fired in a magnificent 85th-minute winner.

Extended highlights from Holmes Park as the Club's Under-23s drew 2-2 with Liverpool in Premier League 2 Division 1.

City's Development Squad also came back from a one-goal deficit at Holmes Park on Friday evening, but were curtailed in the 95th minute by a determined Liverpool side in Premier League 2.

Curtis Jones' low strike handed the Reds an early advantage in Whetstone before Admiral Muskwe's dogmatic effort and a curler from George Thomas turned the clash on its head.

Despite having withstood early pressure from their visitors, Leicester's youngsters went into the interval ahead and, over the course of the second period, began to dominate the encounter.

However, just as it seemed the Foxes would sealed their second win of the 2019/20 campaign, up stepped Luis Longstaff to poke home a close-range effort in the last minute of added time.

The Club's Under-18s made it two wins on the bounce on Saturday with a wonderful 5-1 success over Swansea City at Beaufort Road in U18 Premier League South.

Just 17 minutes in, the young Foxes were behind as Swans midfielder Bradley Gibbings latched onto Adnan Moti's pass to convert past American goalkeeper Chituru Odunze.

The visitors rallied, however, and were soon ahead following a fine effort from Terell Pennant and a Dempsey Arlott-John brace, one of which came from the penalty spot.

After 30 minutes, the home side did go ahead, though, as Caroline Weir found the net with a close-range effort, before Pauline Bremer, Weir again and then Tessa Wullaert struck after the break.
