13.09.1997 Spurs crashed to a 3-0 Premier League defeat with the City goals coming through Steve Walsh, Steve Guppy and Emile Heskey.

Les Ferdinand made home fans hold their breath with an early header, but Ian Walker was called on to tip a Heskey shot onto the post and an Ian Marshall header onto the bar.

Walsh opened the scoring in the 55th minute with a header from Garry Parker's free-kick, then Guppy's shot beat Walker after a corner fell to him in the 68th minute before Heskey hit the third Leicester goal after 77 minutes.

A fine all round performance left Leicester reeling at White Hart Lane.  It was a cold Wednesday night, but Spurs warmed their fans with Chris Waddle and Clive Allen linking well to set up Nico Claesen to slide the ball home in the 35th minute.

Paul Allen was felled in the box and cousin Clive converted the spot-kick in the 52nd minute, while Paul got the third goal after taking Steve Hodge's through ball to score shortly after.  The scorer was involved in the build up for the fourth goal, just a minute later, when he found Claesen, who put Clive Allen in for his 37th goal of the season.  The Belgian wrapped up the 5-0 win with a fine shot on 65 minutes.

03.04.1982 Spurs won this FA Cup semi-final at Villa Park under sad circumstances, as the Falklands War had broken out the previous day.  This placed Ossie Ardiles in a difficult position, with his loyalties divided and although he played, he received a lot of abuse from the Leicester fans.  Although this was to be his last game for Tottenham that season, he helped Spurs through to the final, even though he would not be there himself.

The match was close until the 56th minute, when Ardiles and Glenn Hoddle worked a short corner with Ossie crossing to find Garth Crooks six yards to volley home powerfully.  Leicester lost Tommy Williams, carried off with a broken shin and having used their substitute were down to ten, with Spurs taking advantage by pressurising Ian Wilson to lob a 76th minute back pass over his keeper's head to make it 2-0.

25.10.1975 Leicester City welcomed Spurs to Filbert Street, but it was Tottenham who were the happier team at full-time.

A 3-2 win was the boost the team needed after a poor run of results. A seventh minute goal gave Tottenham a good start, with Ralph Coates smuggling the ball into the net from close range, but former Spurs winger Keith Weller levelled the score just six minutes later and then, in the second half, put Leicester ahead.

At that stage a point looked a satisfactory outcome, so Martin Chivers' 70th minute drive past Mark Wallington from 12 yards out looked to have achieved that.

However, when Spurs pressed forward straight away from the kick-off, Chivers set up skipper Steve Perryman to fire in a fine first time effort to give Spurs a 3-2 lead, which they hung onto until the end. In fact, only a flying save from Wallington prevented a bigger winning margin, as Coates went close to making it four at the death.

22.02.1975 Spurs crashed to Leicester City at White Hart Lane as the Foxes ran out 3-0 winners. 

A right wing Bob Lee cross was touched on by Frank Worthington and defender Mike Stringfellow applied the finishing touch to give City an early lead.  The score stayed like that until thirty minutes from the end, when Worthington converted Lee's cross for 2-0, which became three ten minutes later after Lee and Keith Weller had carved an opening for Jon Sammels to score.

16.11.1974 Spurs had a happy trip to Filbert Street, winning 2-1 away at Leicester City in the First Division.

Steve Earle had put the Foxes ahead in only the fifth minute to shock Spurs, but Martin Peters jumped high to head past Mark Wallington's attempted punch on John Pratt's right-wing corner putting Tottenham level within eight minutes.  Martin Chivers was then thwarted by Mark Wallington, as the keeper raced out at his feet.

Two minutes into the second half, Ralph Coates flashed home a shot off the left hand upright from Pratt's left wing cross after a good run and this goal turned out to be the decider in the game.

Spurs had the upper hand in the second half and Martin Chivers, John Duncan and Steve Perryman all had good chances to add to the lead, but there were a couple of nervy moments as Leicester pushed forward to try and find an equaliser, but they could not breach the Tottenham defence.

27.04.1974 Tottenham's win was assured by Martin Chivers' 100th League goal for the club at White Hart Lane.

Martin Peters and Ralph Coates linked up to create the chance for Chivers to power the ball home from just inside the area past Peter Shilton in the second half.  Steve Earle hit the bar for the Foxes before the break and the game could have gone either way after the interval.

21.04.1973 The two teams fought out a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane, with an Alan Gilzean header giving Tottenham an early lead, but Keith Weller struck late on to earn the Foxes a point.

Alan Gilzean got in front of his marker at the near post to glance home a free kick from Ray Evans in the sixth minute, but with just over 90 seconds left, former Spur Weller levelled for Leicester to rob Spurs of the win.   Earlier in the match, Martin Peters had been denied a goal when his diving header was well stopped by Peter Shilton.

18.11.1972 Tottenham deserved their 1-0 goal at Filbert Street and could have beaten Leicester City more convincingly.

Spurs dominated the first half and hit the woodwork twice through Alan Gilzean hitting bar and post, while Martin Peters went close to breaking the deadlock.

Jimmy Pearce and Martin Chivers also had good chances to score, before Leicester battled back and force Pat Jennings into action a couple of times. The only goal of the game was scored in the 56th minute by Chivers who finished with a fierce shot after he was set up by Gilzean and John Pratt.

29.04.1972 Seven goals were shared by Leicester City and Spurs in this match at the Lane with Tottenham winning out by the odd goal.  The Spurs team was weakened by England call-ups as they were playing West Germany at Wembley in the European Championship qualifier on the same day, so Leicester City were lucky not to go home with more than a 4-3 defeat.

With just a minute gone, Mike England put Tottenham into the lead with a header and then it was made 2-0 by Jimmy Pearce's close range goal, but Leicester hit back to level by the break.  Len Glover got the first Foxes goal and Jon Sammels hit the equaliser from the penalty spot.

Cyril Knowles scored a spectacular goal to restore the Tottenham lead and then scored from a penalty kick, after his first attempt had to be re-taken, to make it 4-2, but Leicester had not given up and Malcolm Partridge scored towards the end of the 90 minutes to make it a nervy ending for Spurs.

Allan Clarke had put the Foxes ahead before Jimmy Greaves pulled Spurs level and then gave them a 2-1 lead before half-time.

24.09.1949 A rousing performance at Filbert Street earned Tottenham both league points in this Second Division meeting.

Les Bennett was the supplier for Sonny Walters to fire an unstoppable shot to put Spurs in front, and Len Duquemin added a second to round off a satisfactory first-half for Spurs.  Charlie Adam got Leicester back into the match with a second half goal, but the pressure was mainly on the home defence, who managed to hold out to prevent a bigger Tottenham victory.

07.02.1948 Second Division Spurs had to wait until halfway through the second half to pull away from the Foxes in this Fifth Round FA Cup tie.

Eddie Baily's through pass was finished neatly by Duquemin, but Harrison's wind-assisted 35-yarder flew in over Ted Ditchburn's head to make it 1-1.  A second Duquemin strike put Tottenham ahead again, just before the half-time break.

Lee brought the scores level again minutes after the restart, but once more Len Duquemin netted , this time with his head, getting on the end of Stevens' corner to restore Tottenham's advantage.  Two more quick goals by Freddie Cox, the first a penalty kick, gave Spurs the breathing room to ensure their place in the quarter-finals.

11.04.1936 A 1-1 draw with Leicester City at White Hart Lane, with George Hunt scoring for Tottenham came with a much changed team from the previous day's match at Charlton Athletic.

An injury to Arthur Rowe at centre-half forced Spurs into playing centre-forward Doug Howe in his place. In the time of the match, players were not as versatile as now and specialised in one position. However, Howe did a good job marking Leicester centre-forward Fred Sharman.

The following week, Rowe returned and Howe dropped to the reserves in his usual attacking role. The visitors to the Lane were Leicester City Reserves and after being marked out of the previous first team game, Fred Sharman had been dropped to the second XI and was asked to play centre-half, with the roles reversed from the Saturday before !!
