Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri hailed the return of the fighting qualities and unity that drove the Foxes to last term’s Premier League title after a 1-1 draw with Tottenham.

The Italian hopes to use the result as a turning point, with Islam Slimani expected back from groin trouble for Wednesday’s Champions League trip to FC Copenhagen.

“So far we’d shown an individual spirit but today I saw the old spirit, the team spirit that we created last season and helped us to achieve something,” Ranieri said.

“It was good, a good performance against a fantastic team.

“During the week I talked to my players and I saw our spirit.

“But that’s only words, and the answer on the pitch was fantastic.

“When we play with this spirit we are fighters, and we are fighters together.

“We’ve finished thinking about something different, and now we are back together.”

Ranieri suggested Spurs striker Vincent Janssen had gone down lightly under Robert Huth’s challenge to win the home side’s penalty he later converted.

Blowing out air to indicate the ease with which he felt the Spurs forward went down, Ranieri said: “In my opinion when the free kick was taken there was a foul on Huth stronger than Huth made to Janssen. But it’s okay, it’s no excuse.”

Ahmed Musa levelled early in the second half to earn Ranieri’s team a valuable point at White Hart Lane, leaving the Foxes in 11th place in the league table. (NAN)
