- Leicester City defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 at King Power Stadium on Saturday
- Midfielder Papy Mendy opened the Foxes scoring with screamer 
- James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho and Harvey Barnes completed the turnaround
- Mendy was delighted to help City pick up a crucial three points

Mendy's first goal for the Club equalised Rodrigo Bentancur's opener at King Power Stadium, before later efforts from James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho and Harvey Barnes sealed a big Premier League win over Spurs.

The Senegal international has had to wait seven years to score for the Foxes, but it was worth it on Saturday – netting a sublime strike against Antonio Conte's men. The midfielder, though, was eager to shine the spotlight on his team-mates.

"We were very good today," Mendy told LCFC TV. "Everyone did their job, from the strikers to the defenders. Everyone gave their all in the game and you can see that in the result today, we got the win. We have to keep that mentality.

After we conceded the goal, we kept pushing, we stayed focused.

"We have a good mentality at the moment. We have confidence."

That effort was only the second goal of Mendy's career, but the French-born star says he prefers this one.

"After we conceded the goal, we kept pushing, we stayed focused," he added. "We scored four goals today and that’s a good thing for us. I am very, very proud. It’s my first goal for Leicester, so I’m very happy – and for the team to get the win as well.

A Very Good Day - Mendy's Spurs Verdict

Goalscorer Papy Mendy talks to LCFC TV following Leicester City's resounding win over Tottenham Hotspur.

"My first goal was similar, but I prefer that one today. Everyone was very happy for me."

Mendy's close friend, Ricardo Pereira, made a long-waited return for the Foxes after six months out with an Achilles injury. 

"I'm very, very happy for him," Leicester's No.24 said. "He deserved what the fans did when he came on the pitch. I’m very happy because it’s been a long time he’s not played on the pitch. I hope he will get more minutes soon."
